to prevent update to version 0.6.x lock the version in synaptic.
NOTE: Give ubuntu a change to repair, so keep in touch of update of 0.6.x version ;-)
An alternative easier solution is to start your modem in windows OS, and configure it to use a hybrid mode. Usually, your vendor includes drivers that work out-of-the-box but only on Windows. For example, Tata-Photon includes a GUI tool that enables you to switch between Photon-Plus, Plug-to-surf and Hybrid-mode. The third option will enable your broadband to work out of the box even on linux without installing wvdial or doing other advanced configurations.
