Don't post things to just advertise your personal blog, and don't reopen old threads that have already BEEN answered.
And adding to that...your 'blog' post is incomplete and inaccurate, and doesn't mention anything about usb_modeswitch, which is what is needed to see the device AS A MODEM to start with. Once it's 'switched' to a modem device, ANY Linux PPP dialer will be able to pick it up and configure it.

sorry i was just trying to help
the method i had posted was a much simpler way to install it cause i had come here when i was facing this problem and the posts above dint help much
sorry again !!
Always glad to have new ways of doing things, but your blog post leaves out a good bit. Why don't you just post it here, and put in all the steps you followed? Remember; whey you say "copy a file"...some folks won't know how to do that, so be sure to fill in those blanks.
And I'm not sure about 'simpler'; typing in "usb_modeswitch", then configuring a connection with whatever dialer/network manager you wish seems pretty simple. That can even be automated in a script, which will perform the usb_modeswitch, then dial your connection for you.
I have the photon + connected, it shows mounted. When I try wvdial, it connects fine and IPs are assigned.Ping to this IP is working. PIng to url is also working fine... I have already set the nameserver in resolv.conf.
But unable to browse in Mozilla.
Members, please suggest !!
