Trying to set up GPRS connection with Nokia N70 & wvdial - no luck

I'm using Fedora 9 and trying to set up gprs connection with my Nokia n70 and wvdial so i could get online with my laptop. Everything seems to go into the right directions but then wvdial just freezes up. I'm using Vodacom South-Africa as an ISP. I've tryid connecting using usb-cable and bluethooth with same resoults.
Here's my wvdial config file:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Baud = 460800
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = ATM0
Init5 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"
FlowControl = NOFLOW
Ask Password = 0
Username = anything
Password = anything
Compuserve = 0
Phone = *99#
Idle Seconds = 0
Stupid Mode = 1
ISDN = 0
Auto DNS = 1
Check Def Route = 1
Compuserve = 0

And here's what happens when i run wvdial:

[root@localhost Robert]# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
--> Sending: ATM0
--> Sending: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet"
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT*99#
--> Waiting for carrier.
~[7f]}#@!}!} } }2}#}$@#}!}$}%\}"}&} }*} } g}%~
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Mon Dec 8 09:06:19 2008
--> Pid of pppd: 6287
--> Using interface ppp0
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> local IP address
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> remote IP address
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> primary DNS address
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]
--> secondary DNS address
--> pppd: [10]�T[08]

And here is where it just stops and doesn't respond, i quit it with ctrl-c. I can see from my phone that it has created a gprs connection but when i try pinging my phone ( it gets 100% package loss. Anyone got an idea what's the problem and how to fix it?
