Maybe see ? I
added now a link to that page also from DebianOnFreeRunner.

I'm myself actually using old method from my Om2008.12, since it seems
to work. I launch this from a PyGTK application:

identvar=$(date +%s)
ptsvar=$(dbus-send --system --print-reply --type=method_call
--dest=org.pyneo.muxer /org/pyneo/Muxer
org.freesmartphone.GSM.MUX.AllocChannel string:$identvar | grep string
| awk -F '"' '{ print $2 }')

sleep 2

echo $identvar $ptsvar
pppd $ptsvar 115200 call gprs

...and have setup /etc/ppp/gprs-connect-chat + /etc/ppp/peers gprs.
But I guess it's pretty useless if FSO stack takes care of all that
when sending a single dbus message like described on the GPRS_FSO wiki
