           Summary: PIN authentication does not work
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: current svn head
          Platform: Neo1973
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: gsmd
        AssignedTo: tick at openmoko.com
        ReportedBy: tilman.klar at gmx.de
                CC: buglog at lists.openmoko.org

When booting the Neo1973 using my T-Mobile SIM card using OM2007.2, no PIN
dialog shows up and I'm unable to connect to the GSM network. So I tried using
the latest kernel/rootfs from
http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/neo1973/deploy/glibc/images/neo1973, which
actually gives me the PIN dialog. However, when keying in the correct PIN, the
phone just keeps asking for it again. When looking at the logfile, one can see
what happens in lines 672 and 697. I closed the dialog by pressing 'back' and
waited a little, since I saw the "AT+CPIN?" command scrolling by. After that, I
was able to key in my PIN using the following procedure (USB-Networking):
root at fic-gta01:~$ libgsmd-tool -m atcmd
libgsm-tool - (C) 2006-2007 by Harald Welte and OpenMoko, Inc.

I registered to the network using libgsmd-tool and now the phone works without a
hitch. Although I only have a limited knowledge concerning this GSM issue, from
my opinion it would be best to prepend an 'AT+CPIN?' every time the PIN dialog
sends an 'AT+CPIN="...."', would it not?

I'll attach the logfile and start playing with my new phone now. It sure is a
great gadget.
