What is sakis3G?
Sakis3G (http://www.sakis3g.org/) is a tweaked shell script which is supposed to work out-of-the-box for establishing a 3G connection with any combination of modem or operator. It automatically setups your USB or Bluetooth™ modem, and may even detect operator settings. You should try it when anything else fails!

You can download sakis3g with or without usb_modeswitch included. I already have usb_modeswitch so i will choose sakis3g package that doesn't contain usb_modeswitch.

For information about usb_modeswitch installation check this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1578311) guide.

sakis3g installation:

1- Install dependences:

sudo apt-get install libusb-dev

2- Download sakis3g:

wget http://www.sakis3g.org/versions/latest/i386/sakis3g.gz
3- Check data integrity:

echo "dda70fd95fb952dbb979af88790d3f6e sakis3g.gz" | md5sum -c
4- Extract data:

gunzip sakis3g.gz
5- Give sakis3g execution permission

sudo chmod +x sakis3g
6- Copy sakis3g to /usr/bin

sudo cp sakis3g /usr/bin/
Now you have sakis3g installed.

Add sakis3g to desktop:
from your terminal run:

1- select more options & click ok
2- select Create dekstop shortcut & click ok
