Only some 3G SIMs are problematic (bug #666), and that seems to have been 
fixed with the recent gsm firmware update. It now works for my O2 UK SIM

There's nothing particularly unusual about the drivers, but many of them start 
up as usb-storage to provide the Windows driver, then need to be switched 
over to usb-serial mode to do the comms. This seems to cover most models, but 
I don't know if it's been tried on ARM yet.
