I've just got a Rogers Nokia CS-18 rocket stick but when I plug it into my laptop it doesn't get recognized as a 3G modem. I've rebooted and tried plugging it into windows first but nothing seems to work.

I have to give thanks to @inhuman4 from the USB_ModeSwitch forums for figuring this one out.
Basically, the modem acts like a USB key until a certain code is sent to it. This code is device specific and Ubuntu uses usb_modeswitch to switch the mode on the modem from key to modem.

Then they need to add this to
That's it! Unplug and replug your rocket stick and you are ready to go! :)
Hopefully these config file changes will be added to the Ubuntu distribution soon.
