The gpio186 thing works not so well yet.
I get either
	a dialog with a number block and "please wait" above it (after
	showing "no modem" for some time
        (probably killing qpe here will help here)
	a simple message "no network"
That depends on the previous state (was it off or on at reboot?).
The modem also needs some time to boot before
it appears as an usb device.
I propose this check here:

if [ -f /sys/class/gpio/gpio186/value ];
   for dummy in 1 2 3 4 5 6; do
     if [ ! -e /dev/ttyHS_Application ]; then
       echo 0 >/sys/class/gpio/gpio186/value
       sleep 0.5
       echo 1 >/sys/class/gpio/gpio186/value
       sleep 8

With that code it seems to start reliably.
You should be able to go without the loop but not without checking
for file existence. If the modem is on and you change value from 0 to 1,
the modem will go into a half-turned-off mode so probably there will be
the "no network" message. 

Is UMTS networking supposed to work? I have not seen it working in
