I chased this up last year and had to register at the zte forum

The forum is next to useless for linux related info for the 156 and
basically says no possible connection even for contacts, calender no
mention of data connection.

Later I found this about connecting a ZTE modem
It may give a hint, I didn't chase it up.

The 156 worked as a modem in WinXP but only with the ZTE application
so it should be possible.

Good luck, please let us know if you get it working.  I noticed a
number of trolls on forums claiming success but asking for a direct
e-mail to them - I think that is BS.
