Default OpenBSD and 4G/LTE usb modems

Do you have any experience in using 3g/lte modems in OpenBSD?
Which one of those with hardware support cause no problems?
Is umsm man page the only source of hardware support for usb connected 4g/lte modems?

Do you have a decent how-to on configuring such modem? I can't find anything explaining from a-z, rather copy-paste from people's configs.

I asked about this on a Face Book Open Bsd group, of all places, and some one posted this link:

http://www.ogris.de/howtos/freebsd-huawei-e392.html
Even though it is FreeBsd, it might be able to be applied to OpenBsd, I don't know though.

It seems like it is worth a try, the guy that posted the link seems to think so to.
https://man.openbsd.org/umsm.4#ZTE_MF190 is supported.
I was looking at the ZTE MF195 specs, and it has a lot more features then the one I was using and trying with, keep us posted on how it goes.

Yeah, ZTE MF190 is supported, but... I have ZTE MF195, which one might think is also supported since it's almost exactly the same device. Unfortunately, it seems that although OpenBSD recognizes the device, it sees it only as storage (sd and cd(!))...

btw, I have started a thread on misc, so if you would like to follow here's the link
