I wasn't sure my diagnosis was right till you confirmed it was, thanks a lot.

I was able to get the setup working!

> Assuming you can't find those options present in /etc/ppp/options

I had misunderstood how the command line option "file" works as I was
thinking that it override all other options.

I was starting pppd as `pppd call gprs` (with gprs in /etc/ppp/peers/)
and didn't think that pppd reads both the /etc/ppp/options and gprs

The "peer" here refers to the serial modem or the remote server?
pppd succeeds when I use a modem from a different brand, with the same
SIM and with 'noaccomp' and 'nopcomp'
