Hi,

There is a patch pending for allowing a CDC modem interface not having the 
correct descriptors to work. It is not yet committed. You could try adding the 
VID+PID to u3g.c. Basically, your modem should have worked, given that the 
manufacturer had followed the specs. Another alternative is to use LibUSB.

Could you remind me about this issue in one week or so?
