It was also backported to 0.84, so the mention of 0.88 is probably
Also, the same changes apply to other wireless network types, not just
3G, so I don't think "3G Support" is the right description.
By the way, if you produce a 0.84 re-spin, then I can easily test it for
you. See sucrose-0.84 branch in

There can be other explanations for this reason, such as incorrect SIM
inserted. It is better to stick to the meaning; "PIN check failed."

While APN is indeed known to cause PPP_DISCONNECT and PPP_FAILED, there
are many other reasons, and so it is incorrect to specifically identify
APN as the only cause. An invalid APN is a common cause, but not the
only cause. Another cause commonly seen is lack of radio signal or
Also, "Access Point Name (APN)" is how it is described in the Modem
Configuration control panel, and so that is how you should describe it
in a message.

Again, this is not the only reason this can occur.
Also, "tel number" is not the way it is described in the control panel,
it uses "Number".

"tel number" should be "Number".

More should be handled.

You seem to have selected a subset of available NM_DEVICE_STATE_REASON
values. A larger list is at
and shows several reasons that an Australian deployment would expect to
encounter with the Australian wireless broadband provider networks.
I think more reasons should be handled.
