On Sierra's site there is a
link( in
the knowledge base which says:

"**Note: Ubuntu 9.10 distribution is not supported with Sierra
Wireless modems. Ubuntu 9.04 distribution is still supported with all
Sierra Wireless modems listed in this KB article.
We expect the issue to be fixed in Ubuntu 10.4."

If you require Ubuntu 9.10 and Sierra isn't working get a Novatel.
