    HAving the same issue with 13.04 ,network manager sees mobile broadband device but I cannot connect. Is it possible to see the connection as it executes? Perhaps I can look at the connection script? or connection config ? Where do I pull this up?

    Please post in the Ubuntu +1 forum about this:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=427

    It is not yet released and all posts concerning it go there, as this one probably will before long (the individual post with a little editing). That is where it belongs because those that are testing 13.04 and can help you hang out there.

    Thanks Bucky. I'm back. 13.04 was a no-go for me. Formatted the entire harddrive, and reinstalled 12.04. Starting from scratch all over again. Gonna keep scouring these forums and the internet for a solution to this. Still hoping that someone who has been successful in getting this to work , will see this post and help me out.

    Additionally, I've opened up a launchpad.net issue.

    There has GOT to be a solution for this. Too many of us have mobile broadband cards in our systems....so....

    I will keep you all posted on my progress. If I solve this, I will definitely be very detailed in how I got it done.

    QUESTION: how can I see what commands the modem is sending when trying to connect? I'm thinking the solution may lie in configuring the right commands.

    Totally solved!!! Up and running...needed to physically connect the antennae to the modem on the hardware itself. Go figure!!
