I don't know if your phone will work.  For KPPP to use it, it would have to function the 
same as a USB Modem.  If it will do that, what you need to do is make a link: /dev/modem 
to the proper device for your phone.  Normally, this would be:

	ln -s /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem

Then tell KPPP to use: /dev/modem for the device.

I doubt that that will work.

OTOH, if the phone will function as a network node, you would need something that would 
work with what ever network protocol it used.

I doubt that the phone would use SLIP unless it is Linux based so you can't treat it as 
another computer.

Another possibility is that you could still use it as a tty (but not with PPP) if you knew 
how to communicate with it.
