Description of problem:
After plugging my mobile phone with usb on RHEL7, i did see that a new menu item appear in the network menu icon in gnome-shell, named "Auto broadnband". As I wanted to configure my phone to used it as modem, i clicked on it. Nothing happened.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q gnome-shell
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug a phone ( a galaxy S II in my case )
2. Click on 'auto broadbnad' in the network menu
Likely a network manager popup should appear.
Here is what is written in the log
JS ERROR: !!! Exception in callback for signal: activate
JS ERROR: !!! message = '"Invoking pure virtual function NMDevice.createAutomaticConnection"'
JS ERROR: !!! fileName = '"/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/status/network.js"'
JS ERROR: !!! lineNumber = '518'
JS ERROR: !!! stack = '"()@/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/status/network.js:518

So, due to interface change in RHEL 7.2, I cannot reproduce it. Not sure if it should be closed or not.
