nokia 3390b, cannot connect

I am trying to use Gnokii version 0.5.10, under Gentoo, to connect to my
Nokia 3390 (T-Mobile gold edition).  My laptop only has USB ports, and I
have a serial cable to connect to the phone.  I am using a USB->serial
converter that is supported by the kernel (Prolific chip), and
/var/log/messages shows that it is being detected and is establishing
the serial port as /dev/usb/tts/0.

The following is my .gnokiirc file: 

port = /dev/usb/tts/0
model = 6110
initlength = default
connection = serial
bindir = /usr/sbin/
use_locking = yes
smsc_timeout = 10
TELEPHONE = 12345678

when I run gnokii --monitor or --identify, it says:
GNOKII Version 0.5.10
Lockfile /var/lock/LCK..0 is stale. Overriding it..
<and after a short wait, probably somewhere between 30 seconds-1 min>
Telephone interface init failed: Command timed out.

I am sorry to bother yall with this, but googling hasnt turned up
anything useful.  I am pretty sure that the serial port is being
recognized fine, and I dont think that there is any configuration
necessary for it after plugging it in.  

If anyone uses this phone with gnokii, or can help in any way, please
reply ASAP.
