Anyone know the secret sauce to get a 3G GOBI 2000 modem to connect to
Verizon's CDMA network.

In the past I believe I have used just a dial string of #777 and an APN
name of "vzwinternet", but it isn't working.

I have one connection on number "*99#" which is what it wants by
default.  Also have a profile #777.  Both have an APN of "vzwinternet"
and a Type of "any".

I can only edit this using the old nm-connection-editor as Network
Settings has the Option button from "Mobile broadband" grayed out.
