    Help installing china (sky) EDGE modem

    I have got this usb modem from a windows user.













    he told he lost its driver cd so i took it for using it on my ubuntu 11.04.
    but It was not detected in network manager.but ubuntu detects it.
    Code:
    lsusb
    >>
    Code:
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 007: ID 0471:1234 Philips (or NXP) 
    Bus 004 Device 006: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    one of them is my bluetooth dongle. another is that modem.
    So i tried wvdial. but could not connect.
    my /etc/wvdial.conf configuration is
    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","gpinternet"
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    Baud = 230400
    New PPPD = yes
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = *99***1#
    Username =xyz
    Password =xyz
    but when i type sudo wvdial, output is
    Code:
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    +CME ERROR: 3
    --> Bad init string.
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    ATZ
    +CME ERROR: 3
    --> Bad init string.
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    ATZ
    +CME ERROR: 3
    --> Bad init string.
    I also tried sakis3g. but did not get any result. now how can i connect this modem. I don't have that driver cd. so i can't test it in any windows pc to make sure that it is physically damaged. tx

    have you tried this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup
    or

    the number in the search bar is the model # or the usb thingy
