  network-manager doesn't work with dell 5530 hsdpa mobile broadband

Bug description:
  Network manager doesn't connect to mobile broadband using the Dell
  5530 hsdpa mini-pci card. Shows up in network-manager as having a gsm
  device, but even with the correct settings it wont connect.

  I did manage to get it working by installing gnome-ppp and manually
  configuring AT commands the card requires to active the radio and set
  the APN. I can get connected this way, but it is not as nice as being
  able to use network-manager. It also required my user to be added to
  the dialout and dip groups I think.

  The 5530 card requires these AT commands to activate radio and set the APN 
and so on:
  ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0

  Obviously replacing the VirginBroadband with the appropriate APN for
  the connection.

  I don't know if its worthwhile but maybe if the network-manager tool
  had the ability to customise AT init strings under and advanced button
  for mobile broadband or dial-up modems?

  Also the card also supports GPS which can be enabled with (for example):
