Default HSDPA Modem, MF626i

I would like to get a 3G connection working on OpenBSD, is this possible?
I have a ZTE MF626i USB modem, does anybody know if this can work on OpenBSD?
Otherwise, what is the best USB modem to purchase that is easy to set up on OpenBSD and reliable?
Any advice?

There was a discussion of this device in the misc@ mailing list in 2009. I do not know if support was ever added.

In brief, the device was attaching as a CD drive instead of as a modem.

See: this thread and also this follow on thread.

On Windows it loads as both a drive and a modem. The drivers are loaded from the mounted drive. That must be why.

Anyway, any advice on what a good USB modem is to purchase for OpenBSD ... something that works properly and is reliable ?

Your best bet is to research this topic yourself on the official mailing list archives -- predominantly misc@ & to a lesser extent, tech@. A list of archive sites can be found at the following:
