I'd assume that was NM 0.6.x?  Dialup support was pretty hacked in and
was removed a few years ago with NetworkManager 0.7.x.  We're looking at
adding it back into ModemManager though, which is what NM 0.7+ uses for
controlling modems and 3G sticks.

Right, because they aren't seen by ModemManager and not supported at
this time :(
