Anything I am missing???
I've been using Reliance ZTE USB modem with Slackware 14.0 since its release and previously MTS CDMA modem with Slackware 13.37 with ease.
I'm not at home, so can't check the make and model of the modem at the moment but I've been using kppp for CDMA modems as the dialer and its been really great.
Yours seem to be Airtel GSM modem which seems to be an issue. Some time back I tried using Idea 3G GSM modem with kernel 3.2.29 but had connection issues, had to install their own GUI but finally gave up because of poor network issues.
Try compiling a newer kernel or upgrade to -current as allend suggested.
