I was about to be sad because usb-modeswitch-data is no longer available in the 11.10 repositories, but...
There is now a fully automated Mobile Broadband "wizard" that pops up when you first plug in an appropriate device. My Cricket A605 was automatically detected, and after confirming my country and my provider, it began working immediately!!
Go Ubuntu! Go 11.10!!!
I wish ANY Linux distro would even recognize my cricket dongle...
ZTE AC3781 usb dongle 10/18/2012
Until Linux catches up I am STUCK with Windows 7
Lets assume you had some flavor of linux and only had the usb dongle to connect with.
How then could someone D/L the necessary items to get it to work?
Reminds me of Win98 on a dialup with a corrupted inf file and no driver disk...
