You can't pull a usb modem out of its housing and replace the connector
soldered on wires ?

Something like an E160 is very easy to get up and running.

Volume wise the usb modems aren't any larger than the modules

Can get the Tellit modules (bga) mounted from around US$99 if you can
use the ones without gps
and without the python scripting
but would need to add an external sim socket and its 3V not 5v on the io
pins (need level shifter)

This ones cheaper but not the nicest connector for soldering
and the eval board maybe a bit large for you ?
