Unable to find my CDMA 1x Modem


I have a ZTE CDMA 1x Modem (Reliance Netconnect). The modem has a USB interface and it works as a PLUG-&-PLAY device on windows (and has a Flash Storage too for driver information for windows.)

I am unable to find my modem on Linux machine so that i can use wvdial for getting connected to internet on my linux machine.

This the dmesg output for my modem.

Code:
