Hello i'm using a 3G+ stick, by Sfr in France.

Is it possible to get a static local ip address ?

I wasnt able to find the answer with google. Thank you

If it's a stick it doesn't matter: all you have is a "modem", so you will get on that device the IP that the provider gives you.
All you can do, if (depending on the device) a bridge with a local eth0 or you can use an alias for the device. Doubt you can acheive this with a stick though.

Sorry I was talking about the local ip address.

For apache I would like to have assigned to my server ( ubuntu 04/11 )
