What page says about using the DHCP server to obtain an IP address after connecting with mmcli was did not apply to me. In my case, the IP address is given in some parameters of 4G connection. I could retrieve it by running mmcli -b 0 and then set it statically on my network interface. I found this solution in Modem Manager mailing list. (If someone is interested, there's a complete script that I use to connect without Network Manager.)
