I have a similar setup: FreeBSD 6, Netcomm NB1300 Plus 4, Netspace.
Occasionally it fails to connect while waiting for carrier, as yours
seems to have done. If I try to connect again, it usually succeeds.
I would suggest making a second attempt to connect, if that fails,
power cycle the modem and try again.
If it still won't connect, then there might be a bigger problem.
I also have option "set cd 10" in my ppp.conf that sets a 10 second
delay waiting for carrier (FreeBSD checks for carrier once per second
until timeout) - I don't know if that makes any difference.
