Do some testing on femtocells
One of the person who got such hardware intended to use it to fix a specific Replicant bug:
- Are samsung modems really off when in airplane mode (Replicant asks the modem(trough libsamsung-ipc) to put itself in plane mode)
- How do some Replicant smartphones cope with RRLP requests? Do smartphones answer when no proprietary GPL libraries are used?
- Does the samsung backdoor/debug-security-issue/ in their RIL exist at the network level too or is it only for debugging with a local shell?
- Devices specific freedom privacy and security evaluations on the wiki, such as https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/GalaxyS3I9300PrivacySecurityEvaluation

The username of the person who got the femtocell sounds familiar. Maybe it's someone associated with Technoethical?
I was in a group together with the guy you're referring to, during last FOSDEM.
I seem to remember (not sure though) we had a talk about the opportunity to get those mini-towers, so you could be right..
I'll see if I can contact him and ask him..

I've talked to Dima, which confirms he holds one of those mini towers, but he hasn't still completed his work of building a working femtocell system.
If he gets to complete the system in time, maybe I could be able to test the effectiveness of the RIL-disabling scripts during next Coliberator.
