it wouldn't hurt to know your device... :)

You'll find a few infos for a few cards at bsd.vwsoft.com/3g/

I wanted to put some more infos about 3G card usage with ppp, pppd
and mpd on that site but as it hasn't been a priority. You may also
probably want to upgrade to RELENG_6_2 (or even better to RELENG_6)
as support for a few devices has been added. To check out whether or
not your device is supported by a current -STABLE version, you
should check out the web interface for the man pages and have a look
at ubsa(4) as this driver supports some 3G cards.
