Huawei modem, as I can see. That should be easy.

Connect to the modem through HyperTerminal or Putty on a different machine
Issue the command: AT^U2DIAG=0
That should disable the virtual CD-ROM and FreeBSD will see the modem.

Here are some commands you'll need to know about:
Do you have a Windows PC near you? If you plug the device into it and the
virtualCD pops up, then it means command was not successful. The fact that
fake CD still shows means command did not succeed!

AT^u2diag=0 (all off)
AT^u2diag=1 (CD on, SD off)
AT^u2diag=256 (CD off, SD is on)
AT^u2diag=255 (all on - including SD Card)
AT^u2diag=276 (Factory Reset)
A+CLAC - Display all available commands. However it does not tell you how
to use them



And here is a working ppp.conf - but you need to change the *bolded* values
to match your end of the environment:)

u3g:
 set device */dev/cuaU0.0*
 set server /var/run/3g-internet "" 0177
 set speed 921600
 set timeout 0
 set authname *saf*
 set authkey *data*
 set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sTIMEOUT 2 \
       \"\" \
       AT OK-AT-OK \
       AT+CFUN=1 OK-AT-OK \
       AT+CMEE=2 OK-AT-OK \
       AT+CSQ OK \
       AT+CGDCONT=1,\\\"IP\\\",\\\"*APN*\\\" OK \
       ATD**99#* CONNECT"
 set crtscts on
 disable vjcomp
 disable acfcomp
 disable deflate
 disable deflate24
 disable pred1
 disable protocomp
 disable mppe
 disable ipv6cp
 disable lqr
 disable echo
 #nat enable yes
 enable dns
 resolv writable
 set dns 8.8.8.8
 set ifaddr 10.1.0.2/0 10.1.0.1/0 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0
 add default HISADDR          # See ppp.link*


Lemme know if you get stuck.

Also, always give details about modem - manufacturer, model...
