Verizon Connection Manager setup for multiple USB modems

I have a netbook that I need to set up to use 2 different USB modems:


one is a USB727

one is a UM175

to use the UM175 I have to manually connect via the Network Connections applet in the Control Panel


Surely there has to be a way to be able to switch between devices within connection manager...?
