The "usb-modeswitch" program is the recommended way to resolve this, and
is part of the default udev rules, so perhaps you just need to add your
device id to it.

If eject will do perfectly fine, why mess around with usb-modeswitch? The
last time I had looked at this fine piece of software engineering, I was
not willing to have this run as root on my machines. That's also why I
did refuse to maintain it for openSUSE and drop it.

Please consider: Dropping usb_modeswitch means: openSUSE has no Support for
approx 80 % of all _current_ hardware for UMTS/3G-Connection.

It seems a bad idea to me and even worse for openSUSE.
