Perhaps if some of the more irritating bugs in usb_modeswitch and
network_manager around 3g connections were fixed, yes. Some

Right now the workarounds for getting 3g working on those insanely
common devices include killing devkit and manually editing
resolv.conf. Neither are what we'd expect new users to do.
