Brand: ZTE (Mobile Broadband dongle)

Release: Isadora
Status: Works fine with some minor problems

What works:

Works perfectly every time using Sakis3g.

What doesn't work:

Is only sometimes successful connecting with NetworkManager - when you right-click NetworkManager icon the "Enable Mobile Broadband" option only sometimes appears for you to click and connect.
Doesn't matter how long you wait.

EDIT: January 2012: updated Network Manager from 0.8 to 0.8.4.
Uninstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome from Synaptic Package Manager.
Added the network-manager daily build ppa for ubuntu lucid main from and updated.
Since then Network-Manager is showing the "Enable mobile broadband" option when I plug in the modem more consistently. It it doesn't appear, I enter in a terminal: sudo killall modem-manager
... wait ... then it usually appears.

What was done to make it work:

See forum thread:
post #7 for sakis3g solution (for me, anyway - YMMV).

Additional notes:

ISP: Telstra (Australia)
APN: telstra.internet

NOTE: This is for Telstra PREPAID mobile broadband
NOT Bigpond internet plans - different APN
