The prober can be re-run after the desktop application has prompted for 
the PIN. It's easy enough to stick a callout method on USB modem devices 
to do that. The advantage of that is that hal can act as a cache of the 
data, rather than requiring every application that may want to use the 
device to perform its own probing on every open.
