Probably because this modem is meant to be Plug'nPlay with Ubuntu.
Do you have usb_modeswitch installed?

I'm not too familiar with RHEL so I can't say why it doesn't switch automatically.
Actually, RHEL used to include support. That was what you paid for. But I see they no longer include the support in the basic package. (but they still charge for it lol)
