This message is a bit misleading. Setting allowed modes *is* supported
by the device, just the specific combination passed is not supported.

Interesting to see that 2g|3g|4g is supported but just 3g|4g isn't. I
bet that 2g|3g is supported.

I just checked and there's currently no support for 'preferred' mode
when using the "Set Technology Preference" QMI command (which is the
default command used, even if deprecated). When using the new "Set
System Selection Preference" (if you configure including
--with-newest-qmi-commands, which I wouldn't do yet), we do use the
preferred setup to select between 2G or 3G ("GSM/WCDMA acquisition order
preference"), but that doesn't apply to 4G either.
