Correct, PPP doesn't get invoked at all with these devices.  Can you
provide some log output from /var/log/messages or /var/log/daemon.log
that shows where you plug in the device and where NM recognizes it?

You need the udev rules to eject the ZeroCD mass storage device that
always pops up when you plug the thing in, but after that you'll get the
serial devices that are needed to control the dongle.  Once you've tried
to connect, grab logs from the aforementioned places and reply to this
message with them.

I have an iCON 225 that I use quite often so it should work, but if it
doesn't then we need to track some things down.  Latest svn 4154 should
have the option to turn on serial debugging with NM_SERIAL_DEBUG as an
environment variable so doing:

NM_SERIAL_DEBUG=blah /usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon

will give you some useful output, which I'd like to see if you can.
