I'm trying to install a Sierra AirCard 320U (branded as "Telstra USB 4G") into a VirtualBox Windows XP machine, on an Ubuntu 10.10 host. usb_modeswitch offers me a way to disable the "mass storage device" option, but I can't see a way to permanently re-enable it so it's usable by VirtualBox (device filters briefly detect it but then it disappears again).

lsusb shows the device as:

0f3d:68aa Airprime, Incorporated

When I first insert the device, it shows as

1199:0fff Sierra Wireless, Inc.

Is there any way to re-enable the storage device so VirtualBox can see it?
