I have a Qualcomm 3G CDMA, which registers as an USB device on  
/dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/ttyUSB1 and /dev/ttyUSB2 (yes, all three of them, but  
only /dev/ttyUSB0 is used for data transfer), so my experience is probably  
quite different from yours.

My card (so far I've only tried it with 3G, not with GPRS reception) works  
fine with 384000 bps, and I haven't seen it stopping.

Here's my Kppp settings:

Authentication: PAP/CHAP
pppd arguments: noauth (I need to run Kppp as sudo for this to work,  
though), novj
IP settings as for a DHCP network (Dynamic IP, standard gateway and DNS  

And that's basically it.

Hope this helps - K.
