Yes, that is right. As long as you have NetworkManager running and
correct settings available, you can just rely on NM/nmcli to bring up
the connection, no need to touch mmcli for anything.

Check the NetworkManager build output, look for the initial configure
report, and check if "modemmanager: yes" is being reported.

And while you're at it, I'd suggest you use a newer MM version as
well; 1.6.4 is totally unsupported right now. :)
