Just use the FSO call i mentioned. Documented at

It should be routed to call that fso function.

The only trick FSO does is to send some AT commands to disable
unwanted (in suspend) unsoliceted "replies" from the modem. You don't
want to have you phone woken up on some network signal quality change.

On resume it basically reenables all those replies.

You can suspend manually with "echo mem > /sys/power/state" to see how
long it'd take if the modem is turned off. You can also kill all GSM
using programs and suspend the FSO way with roughly the same speed.
