My setup: NetBSD 6.0 rc1 on i386, Nokia N900 connected with USB cable.

On connecting the modem is identified as umodem0

Firstly I assume, SLIP is the right method to use as I do not need to dial
like in ppp, just need to connect with the device over USB LAN.

I don't know anything about the N900, but SLIP is almost certainly not the right protocol. Are you sure it's not PPP? On all the phones I've used, to get a GPRS/3G data connection, I use PPP and use "*99#" as the phone number. is about connecting it to a Mac, but it seems to confirm that it uses PPP with *99# as the number, like other phones.
