It amazes me that people want to use wvdial. It doesn't simplify connecting at all compared to plain pppd, but adds yet another program. What we should aim for is adding 3G support to netcfg, which would make wvdial redundant.
I remember this discussion years ago. Well, wvdial actually does simplify matters for some people. Apparently it fails for others.
It would be great to add these features to netcfg, but who's going to do it? Probably not the releng devs, as this was suggested before...
Maybe try the netcfg devs.
