I hope you are also using the same distribution. But installing the debian package did not work. For some reason it failed. I had to do it manually.

Here are the steps:

1. Go to folder: /usr/share/usb_modeswitch. In this folder, there is one zipped file: configPack.tar.gz.

The next step depends on this configPack.tar.gz. So, if you do not have this file, then I suggest you reinstall usb_modeswitch along with the data files from synaptic package manager.

2. Copy this file into a folder of your choice. Say, home/test.

$ cp /usr/share/usb_modeswitch/configPack.tar.gz /home/test
3. Then unzip the file configPack.tar.gz
$ cd /home/test 
$ tar -xvf configPack.tar.gz
4. After unzipping, invoke the following command:
$ sudo /usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -I -W -s 10 -c "<path-to>/12d1:1446" -v 12d1 -p 1446
where <path-to> in this case is /home/test.

After a few minutes my usb modem switched. Once it has switched, connecting to the Internet is simple. I believe that you can easily figure out the steps.

sorted in one way , but Can suggest downloading the source files from the site,

the instructions to install are easy to follow , do know that Debian packages will break Ubuntu version , it is Mentioned at the site.

before installing source , un-install the Ubuntu version including the data

see what happens
