I reply to myself, today I've got it again... I was in my car so I had
to do it via xterm but it works. If you get a modem crash simply do this
to get back the phone functionality:
 echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-pm-gsm.0/power_on
 echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/neo1973-pm-gsm.0/power_on
 killall qpe
 restart qtopia
