It's very easy to connect in ubuntu 11.04
Permanent solutions is going to be usb-modswitch if U r only using MTS or Reliance. If U go for GSM modems like Docomo, Vodafone or Airtel then U may face problem with modswitching. The U need to remove mod switch. So its going to be little tricky. I am in search for a permanent solution for both issues. Will post here if I get it resolved.
Have you tried ejecting the modem? Do not unmount. Simply eject the USB mode which will result in the modem be recognized as a modem. Then it will be available as an internet connection in your favorite Network Manager.
The setup then will be achieved by simply clicking on the connection and following easy setup process.
This worked for me in the Huawei Modems listed here: How do i configure huawei usb modem
Give ejecting a try and please inform.

Just wait for one minute.
The default network manager may detect your device and follow the instructions by it mark it to connect automatically in the mobile broadband edit options. If not open your network mannager go to manage connection open the mobile broadband and add a new connection if it detects installed CDMA device or Huawei EC156 follow the instruction given by the network manager mark it to connect automatically in the mobile broadband edit options
Reboot your system and see it is connected automatically. If not you have to type the two codes mentioned above all the times when you connect your device. It will be very diffficult to type the codes all the time....so go for the following steps to run that commands automattically
