The following steps will enable the use of your Wind Mobile Huawei U7519 as a 3G modem.
Recently I bought a Huawei U7519 phone on the Wind Mobile service. The phone tethers using Windows but what use is that to me? Here is how I made it work using Linux.
echo "option" >> /etc/modules
edit /etc/rc.local and add before exit 0: echo '12d1 101e' > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
Download and install the software as per the instructions at this link: http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/
You should be able to plugin your device and will have a /dev/ttyUSB0 (which you can confirm with ls /dev/ttyU*
Now you can right click your NetworkManager in the panel and edit connections > mobile broadband > add t-mobile internet then edit that profile like so: mobile broadband > apn = internet.windmobile.caalso edit PPP and deselect allow bsd .. and deselect allow deflate
You can also select connect automatically on the mobile broadband tab.

I'll be filling in for Brian Leonard and speaking at this year's event (as Brian has another engagement), on October 24, 2009.
We just firmed up the plans and I will be speaking in Brian's stead , as Brian is already presenting at the
Florida Linux Show on the same date:
This is at the kick-off event of Open Source Week in Toronto . I'm looking forward to the event and the opportunity to speak on OpenSolaris!
Here's my speaker link: http://onlinux.ca/node/123
Everyone that can make it to the 'Fest should, very cool stuff.

Quick notes regarding nfs mounting from an OpenSolaris VBox guest.
I came up against an issue mounting via nfs from a Linux host to an OpenSolaris virtualbox guest (see this post for automounting nfs on OpenSolaris). Checking the host's logs revealed the issue: mountd: [...] refused mount request [..] illegal port.
This is seemingly caused due to the natted connection between guest and host. Adding (insecure) in the host's /etc/exports line for this export enabled the guest to successfully mount the nfs share.
