I must have misunderstood your earlier message, where you wrote:

By "it", did you mean the laptop or the modem?

No.  I'm interested in seeing the usbmon output for when the modem is
first detected by the USB subsystem.  During a normal boot this will 
happen before you can start usbmon.

If you can't boot with the modem off, then try this instead: Unload 
ehci-hcd, uhci-hcd, and ohci-hcd, then start up usbmon (copy the 0u 
file) and reload whichever driver the modem attaches to.
