Well, there seems to be a Linux driver, that apparently talks to the modem 
somehow, to enter tings like PIN. I don't know more about the details of 
that driver, but looking at it may be a good step towards getting the card 
supported (and 50EUR for an UMTS flatrate seems reasonable...).

Thanks, I used it to skip the interface class (and subclass and protocol) 
test, but then it fails in the umodem_get_caps() call.

I don't have the card any longer (being back home from the Chemnitz 
Linuxdays), as pointed out above, analyzing the Linux driver would be a 
good first step for future works.

Thanks for your help!
