 +class ExtEntry(gtk.Entry):

 Cannot get what Ext means here, I see no problem in calling it just Entry
 or GsmEntry or something like that.

 +        self.get_method = None
 +        self.set_method = None

 The idea with using inheritance is that you can declare in Entry these two
 methods and just raise NotImplementedError, then each subclass would
 override it with their own implementations. Grep the code for
 NotImplementedError for examples.

 +    def ignore_changed(self):
 +        if self.changed_handler is not None:
 +            self.disconnect(self.changed_handler)

 It's more usual to use the block and unblock methods:

 +        box = gtk.HBox(spacing=style.DEFAULT_SPACING)
 +        label = gtk.Label(entry.label_text + ':')
 +        label.modify_fg(gtk.STATE_NORMAL,
 +        box.pack_start(label)

 If Entry inherits from HBox and contains the label and the entry, it's
 easier to know from where label_text comes. Grep the code for subclasses
 of [HV]Box.

 +        label = gtk.Label(entry.label_text + ':')

 May be better that ':' is inside the translatable string, as some
 languages can use another symbol, or have it at the other side (RTL

 +            logging.error('Could not connect to gsm connection, %s',

 Can you make it logging.exception so we get a nice traceback?

 +    def __update_state(self, state):

 Why two leading underscores?
