ZTE USB modems, usual all over the world, worked OK until 10.6.5 (included), then needed a patch (available) to run from 10.6.6 through 10.6.8. I am afraid there is no solution for Lion. Wrote to its creators, no reply.
Hi Cattus Thraex,
These article's have your solution:
Also you may wish to try plugging in the modem with the application closed, and waiting until the blue light has been on for about 1 minute - and THEN opening the Connection Manager or whatever program you use to connect. This solves the issue of it saying it cannot find the device.
But you probably already experienced this on 10.6.
Hope that helps!

The solution which worked for me was not Telstra, but Vodafone driver:
Installed them which in turn adds the modem into your Network Services in System Prefs > Network.
From there you can manually set up the 3 Mobile account. Under the ZTEUSBModem add the following info:
Telephone number: *99#
Account Name: username
In my very case, there is no name and password needed, just the phone number.
