Operating system name and version: Debian 6.0.5
Version of smsd: 3.1.11
Name and model of a modem / phone: ZTE MF193

When I plug the modem and do a dmesg, I don't see it attached to a ttyUSB port. Is this a normal behavior?
FYI I don't have this problem when using cygwin with this modem.

I don't have the problem when using a Huawei modem on my Debian machine either..

Is there anything I am missing?
Thank you in advance,
