Here is a driver for Sierra Wireless HSPA+ USB modem. Please test it. My subscription will expire on June 29, 2011. (Yes, it sounds silly.) So, try it before too late.

tarball https://gitorious.org/usie/usie/archive-tarball/master

The driver should work on CURRENT and 8.2 RELEASE.
Supports only Direct IP supported models with device ID of 0x68a3

(Direct IP == the device has a port we can throw IP packets at, no need to use any serial port)
