Hi, just want to update that the problem still exists under 19.10 live system. I couldn't test whether the 77-mm-huawei-net-port-types.rules fix works, since I only have a live-USB system where I can't add the file early enough.
How do we get the Modem Manager people to decide whether the above described workaround is a proper fix that should be upstreamed ? Anything how we can help ?

This didn't work in 17.04, and still does not work in 17.10. The USB device is successfully connected, ModemManager gets as far as "Simple connect state (8/8): All done" During the setup ModemManager complains with "Couldn't find associated cdc-wdm port for 'net/wwp0s20f0u9c2'" DHCP tries to get a configuration, but " dhcp4 (wwp0s20f0u9c2): request timed out". IP6 is set to "automatically" in the network settings for this configuration. and finally connection fails with "device (ttyUSB0): state change: ip-config -> failed (reason 'ip-config-unavailable', internal state 'managed')" I checked that there are enough credits left in my account with the provider. Any ideas what else to check ?
