Good thought, but no.  It's not syncing up with anything external.  In order to
get it online you have to dial out, just like with an old-fashioned telephone
modem (Hayes and US Robotics and the like).  This is long before we get to that
point because we can't even find the modem until it changes its identity and
sets up the /dev/ttyUSB0 device.
