I got most of this from wmpoweruser.com, see the original article here. Thanks a lot to Kuo who figured this out!
The only addition for me was figuring out the initialization command as the one that was originally mentioned didn't work for me on TMobile USA.

Instructions:
1)
Download HTC Sync for Android from HTC for USB Modem driver for 32bit Windows from HTC’s site (the whole package) or for 64bit systems just the driver here.
I just used the driver (second link) on my Windows 7 x64 and bbowman confirmed the full package from HTC's site working for x86.

2)
Unpack the driver and edit both HtcUsbMdmV64.inf and HtcVComV64.inf. Replace the HTC device IDs with VID_05c6&PID_3199. Leave the &MI_00.

3)
Start the EM diagnostic app on your Dell Venue Pro (##634#), and go to Service Center. Switch to composite mode – password is *#301#

4)
After rebooting the phone, open device manager. Select the first unknown device (USB\VID_05C6&PID_3199&REV_0000&MI_00). Select update driver and point to the root of the two folders (it looks like it’s using HtcUsbMdmV64).

5)
Connect device to PC, open "HTC USB Modem" in Device Manager and select "Advance" section and under "Extra Initialization Command" add the following:
Code:
at+cgdcont=1,"IP","epc.tmobile.com"
6)
Create a new dial-up connection with HTC USB Modem, dial-up phone number is *99# .Just connect without user name and password.

Hope that helps, the above procedure worked fine for me :)

I was able to download the chinese driver no problem (just click on the American flag on the top-right so the language is switched). I got through step 3 in your instructions but step 4 didn't work. I connected my DVP to my Win7 laptop and the device manager showed 4 unknown devices, none of which stated USB\VID_05C6&PID_3199&REV_0000&MI_00 in the description. I tried applying the driver to each of the 4 unknown devices and none of them worked.

Perhaps you could be more specific in how those .inf file should be edited? The info I edited were under the setting [Models.NTamd64] in both files because that was the only heading which contained the "&MI-00" that you said to leave alone.

Here is the original info under the Models.NTamd64 section in the HtcUsbMdmV64.inf file:
[Models.NTamd64]
%OEM00% = Modem0, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0EFC&MI_00
%OEM01% = Modem0, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0EFF

Here is what I changed it to:
%OEM00% = Modem0, USB\VID_05c6&PID_3199&MI_00
%OEM01% = Modem0, USB\VID_05c6&PID_3199


Here's the original info under the Models.NTamd64 section in the HtcVComV64.inf file:
[Models.NTamd64]
%OEMDevice00% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0EFE
%OEMDevice01% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0E01&MI_00
%OEMDevice02% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0E02&MI_00

Here's what I changed it to:
%OEMDevice00% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_05c6&PID_3199
%OEMDevice01% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_05c6&PID_3199&MI_00
%OEMDevice02% = OEMPort00, USB\VID_05c6&PID_3199&MI_00


is this correct?

Double click the device, then go to the Details tab. The dropdown menu should indicate "Hardware Ids" - take a look at the first value returned.

And yes, that's how the INF should be edited.

now i only have two unknown devices and the Hardware ID values are:
USB\VID_045E&PID_04EC&REV_0000&MI_00
and
USB\VID_045E&PID_04EC&REV_0000&MI_01

neither one of these can be updated to the HTD driver with the modified .inf files.

That's fine - those aren't Qualcomm devices (sounds like some other Microsoft hardware you have on your PC). Under Modems, you should see HTC USB Modem. Open the Properties of that, go to Diagnostics, then Query Modem. If you see results, then you're good to go.

So it went from 4 to 2 unknown devices? That actually sounds like the drivers were installed :)
Do you have now a HTC USB Modem device under "Modems" in Device Manager when you connect the phone via USB to the PC?
