usb storage iCON 461 0af0:7a01 switched to UMTS usb modem?; howto?

I am trying to use that modem with my netbook nc10 with TinyCoreLinux 4.7.5 and kernel 3.0.21.

I made according

1. the switchicon.conf
DefaultVendor= 0x0af0
DefaultProduct= 0x7a01
TargetClass= 0xff

2. plug in the modem

3. command "usb_modeswitch -c /etc/switchicon.conf"
.. message

no ttyUSBx can be seen.. but ttyHSx are there.
So, I suppose it is switched to UMTS modem?
How to check this or how to be sure it is switched?

It was switched in ttyHS.
By using the "ttyHS5" in the wvdial.conf file, it works.

wvdial.conf file
[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyHS5
Baud = 460800
PPPD Path = /usr/local/sbin/pppd
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
[Dialer Pin]
Init3 = AT+CPIN=xxxx (xxxx is the pin code)
[Dialer Fonic]
Phone = *99#
Username = foo
Password = foo
Stupid Mode = 1
Dial Command = ATDT
Init4 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP",""


icon, modem, umts, usb
