Sorry, I don't know how to force NetworkManager to do whatever you
want it to do (I don't use it at all). But I suggest you to completely
disable pin code request. You can use minicom for that purpose or
simply send needed command directly to device. For example:
$ echo -e AT+CPIN=0000\r\n > /dev/ttyUSB0
The above command will send pin code '0000' to the modem connected to
/dev/ttyUSB0.
Google is your friend here. Something you may consider to do:
