First of all, do not top-post.

'usbdump' is part of the system, but only from beginning at some
version;

Are you sure that /dev/cuaU0.0 belongs to the modem? Please, detach it,
look with 'ls -l /dev/cuaU*' if it went away, attach it again.
Please show the messages from /var/log/messages on attach.

If the /dev/cuaU0.0 device really belongs to the modem, install 'kermit'
from the ports, create a file ~/.kermrc with

set line          /dev/cuaU0.0
set speed         9600
set escape        21
set carrier-watch off
set rec           pack 1000
set send          pack 1000
set window        5
set prompt FreeBSD Kermit>

and check it you can talk to the modem with kermit; the command ATI2
should say something about the modem device.

One should be first able to talk to the modem with a terminal (like
kermit), then bring chat(1) to work and after this watch ppp log, in
that order.
