I think all of the Huawei mobile partner modems are automatically detected by Ubuntu 10.10 or higher, we just have to plug and play. But we can’t send/receive SMSs or use data counter (Statistics) since the modem is detected and configured by network manager, so we don’t get a GUI for mobile partner.
If you want get the GUI you can download the driver from link bellow.
It’s work for CDMA and GSM modems. After downloading the driver, follow this instruction to install it
1.) Extract the downloaded file
Wait untill installation progress is finished. After that, when you plug the modem, the GUI for mobile partner will be automatically open. And now you can use the GUI for short messaging and data counting.
