The F3507g is recognized in network manager although it dosent seem to work.So this is what I did to make it work:

1. remove the pin from your SIM card. I put the SIM in my cellphone and removed it.
2. Edit /etc/wvdial.conf to this:

[Dialer gps]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
Init1 = AT*E2GPSCTL=1,5,1

[Dialer on]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM1
Init1 = AT+CFUN=1

[Dialer off]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM1
Init1 = AT+CFUN=4

[Dialer connect]
Modem = /dev/ttyACM1
Init1 = AT
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","net.tre.se"
Stupid Mode = 1
Modem Type = USB Modem
Baud = 460800
ISDN = 0
Phone = *99#
Password = dummy
Username = dummy

3. edit the /etc/wvdial.conf with your APN settings.(net.tre.se is an example).
4. in the network manager applet: deactivate your network. Otherwise your /etc/resolv.conf will get messed up. (this is where the DNS names are written down).
5. turn on modem in termina. #sudo wvdial on
6. connect #sudo wvdial connect
7. Firefox will not work since it uses network manager to get connection status. So dissable this with: http://www.brunier.nl/?p=61
8. you are now connected.

9. when done, put F3507g back to sleep #sudo wvdial off

1. turn on modem #sudo wvdial on
2. turn on gps #sudo wvdial gps
3. start gpsd on /dev/ttyACM0 #sudo gpsd /dev/ttyACM0
4. you now have GPS so confirm it with #xgps
5. when done put modem back to sleep #sudo wvdial off
#sudo pkill gpsd

Good luck.

Just wanted to point out that it is possible to get the f3507g modules working with NetworkManager and there even is a GPS Control sw available at http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/mbm/

The above page contains installation/usage instructions for both NetworkManager and the GPS.
