Just as an FYI, the N900 Connection Manager (just like the Ubuntu Linux
equivalent) doesn't consider getting an IPv6 address+DNS only (no IPv4) as
being "connected", and considers the connection to be down and spews a
failure message. The scripts linked above requires dual PDP contexts (one
for v4 and one for v6) and this usually requires additional license ($$$)
for SGSN and other parts of the mobile network.
Some other Nokia phones actually support single IPv6 PDP context and thus
work with NAT64 for instance.
Ubuntu has no IPv6 focus at all as far as I can discern from reading
tickets regarding IPv6, they seem content with what they get for "free"
from the kernel and some 3rd party programs one has to install oneself.
A lot of people in the support world (irc+forums etc) actively suggests
disabling IPv6 for a lot of "slowness problems".
We have a long road ahead of us...
