I installed the debian wheezy and use the usb dialup modem to connect the internet, the modem port is "/dev/ttyACM0" and it was woking, but snice few days this problem araised.
During connection the system changing the usb modem id between "/dev/ttyACM0" and "/dev/ttyACM1" without any reason even i ddin't attach any usb device. this is the /var/log/messages:

I run the above command and created the link, but ttyACM1 disappear after reboot, when i disconnect the usb modem cable from the port the /dev/ttyACM0 disappearing as well and after reconnect it come again. so i should make the links after every system boot.
/dev is mounted on some temporary system, and vanishes every time. Udev makes /dev/acm0 when it existys, and removes it when it doesn't exist. You don't really want your pc to talk to the modem while it's not there, do you? find ACM0 (in /lib/udev/ruled.d or somewhere your distro felt like putting it) and ls -l it, it will have a major and a minor number
<type>perms user group ACM0 x y
where y is the minor number. Add 1 to the minor and you can add ACM1
