yeah , also my report of a slow modem detection is a ZTE. As reported
seems to work on ttyUSB2, but reviewing my old scripts , I can assure
that unlock PIN on ttyUSB0 with command: /usr/bin/comgt PIN
-d /dev/ttyUSB0 
And on wvdial.conf, modem always was ttyUSB0.
cat wvdial.conf
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
; Phone =
ISDN = 0
; Username =
Init1 = ATZ
; Password =
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 460800
[Dialer tmn]
Init2 = ATZ
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"ip","internet"
Stupid Mode = 1
ISDN = 0
Phone = *99***1#
Ask Password = 0
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Username = tmn
Dial Command = ATD
Password = tmn
Baud = 460800

So my ZTE works or worked on /dev/ttyUSB0

Hope that information can help.

Btw, about news: my new HUAWEI mobile broadband rocks :) , the detection
is quite fast and nm-applet also show the signal strength, on ZTE signal
strength never change.
