both modems are not officially supported by FreeBSD.

You might get some help from the list if you provide the output of usbconfig and usbdump.

You run usbconfig first to find out the device numbers of the modem and then dump with usbdump the description of the modem.

There should nothing to be done here as the modem is not recognised.
