I have an UMTS Card, but never checked it under xen.
It just shows as a serial port device, and is controlled by special AT 

Things you might want to check:
- do you have pcmcia-drivers enabled in your dom0 Kernel?
- do you see hotplug messages when you insert the card?
- do you have a serial port driver in your kernel?
- does the serial driver recognise the card?
- since xen allocates a serial port for the console, the UMTS modem might end 
up on a different serial device (tts7 instead of tts8), check that, too
