Well I should have chose "PC Suite" instead. Now on NetBSD 4.0 I see:

umodem0 at uhub2 port 1 configuration 1 interface 10
umodem0: Nokia Nokia E71, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 2, iclass 2/2
umodem0: data interface 11, has no CM over data, has break
umodem0: status change notification available
ucom0 at umodem0

Now I need to figure out the PPP script to use. I see various when 
searching google.

For what it is worth, I had taken a SIM out of my dead phone (that had 
been cleaned in a washing machine). So I need to contact my provider to 
activate data service and get details. (The Nokia e71 already works as 
phone and even browsing web -- but I am probably getting billed something 
extra for that since I don't have any contract for it. I am currently 
using AT&T was Cingular so if anyone has suggestions ...)

Once I get it working I will get this documented.
