Hi Tomasz,

apparently I'm not subscribed to this issue so I just happened to see this now.
The issue here is two-fold, it is correct that the right mode needs to be set.
But there are workarounds for that - using a Linux live CD or probably a VM
too, as explained here and in many places on the web.

However in my case  the VIDs aren't there, so I can't use it no matter the mode
the modem is in. It'd be nice to switch modes using FreeBSD, but not critical.
It's a one-time thing anyway. However, if the kernel doesn't know what driver
to add to the modem, nothing is going to happen.

So that's just why I've created the other bug, to add the necessary VIDs and
have the modems that are in the right mode working on FreeBSD as well. I hope
it gets merged soon, would be nice to have it in FreeBSD 13.2.
