Nokia IR support in 10.1.x Network
The modem scripts for Nokia phones (Nokia_IR and Nokia Infrared) supplied with 10.1 don't seem to work (I'm currently on 10.1.3 and this hasn't been corrected yet). However the OS 9 scripts seem to work (I'm on 9.2.2) so I simply replaced the "Nokia Infrared" script in "Library/Modem Scripts" with the one in "System Folder/Extensions/Modem Scripts".

Even though the scripts are marked as the same version, when compared in BBEdit, there are some differences, including one to the modem initialization string.

tried it... no dice

I own a Nokia 8290 and a Powerbooke G3, which has IR support and I'm using 10.1.3. I saw this hint elsewhere and tried it, but to no avail. It dials the phone (which is an improvement over the default script) but it then comes back telling me that it couldn't detect a dial tone.

Can anyone think of anything I might be missing? I have the IR turned on with the phone and G3 and the IR status seems to ping just fine. I would really like to make this work.
