I have seen a solution to a similar problem: Ubuntu hangs after replugging the modem

But what is the solution for a zte modem? I don't think it is the same as that of bcm_wimax. Help please.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I have also experienced this problem.

The easiest solution for this is to plug in the ZTE modem to the PC/Laptop when it is off. Then start your PC/Laptop and it will not hang.

But if it again hangs after replugging then Restart your PC/Laptop and use the above method.

There is another solution you may try as explained in this thread, here -> Ubuntu hangs after replugging the modem
