Please re-read the original question and determine how that applies here. See this:
All instructions I have found force the memory card to be "ejected". I shouldn't have any problems getting the modem to work. However, the device needs to "be ejected" in order to get the modem to work.
So, to state again: is there any way to get the memory card and modem capability working under Linux?
We have the older i think 727 usb novatel modem - same story from Verizon - but the local unic mechanic has it up and running real sweet.
Wil this be the same story - not supported but not to hard to get up and running with due diligence.
