Yes, this devices work with AT%IPDPADDR command:

(ttyACM0): <-- '<CR><LF>%IPDPACT: 1, 1, 0<CR><LF>'
mm_port_set_connected(): (usb0): port now connected
mm_modem_set_state(): Modem /org/freedesktop/ModemManager/Modems/0: state changed (connecting -> connected)
simple_state_machine(): (usb0): simple connect state 6
(ttyACM0): --> 'AT%IPDPADDR=1<CR>'
(ttyACM0): <-- '<CR><LF>%IPDPADDR: 1,,,,,,,,,, <CR><LF>OK<CR><LF>'
(ttyACM0): <-- '<CR><LF>%NWSTATE: 4,25001,3G-HSDPA,R99,0<CR><LF>'

The IP address and other parameters are identical to parameters obtained
by dhclient. Routing tables of both methods are identical too.
NetworkManager seems to connect, but no server could be reached, until I
run dhclient manually.
I think, that DHCP request activates connection in the modem itself.

I don't know, is there any AT command to autodetect if the device wants
DHCP request.
