if your modem is not supported out of the box, go to the file usbdevs and add an entry for it:
I got last week a modem not supported by FreeBSD and just did this:
product HUAWEI ETS2055 0x1803 CDMA modem
0x1803 is the ID of my modem. The ID is unknown to FreeBSD 8.2.
Then add a line like the following to u3g.c:
U3G_DEV(HUAWEI, ETS2055, U3GINIT_HUAWEI),
Check the file for the other options like U3GINIT_HUAWEI you have.
The chances are then pretty high that all will work
The next problem will then your ppp.conf.
