I have an EVDO modem. I tried to connect it with wvdial; pppd works fine, but I don't like having to use the terminal. I want to connect using network manager.

The modem is detected fine in Ubuntu, but it always fails.

I looked syslog in /var/log and I found this:

Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <warn> CDMA connection failed: (32) Unknown error  
Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <info> **(ttyUSB1)**: device state change: prepare -> failed (reason 'none') [40 120 0]  
Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <info> Marking connection 'smart connection 1' invalid.  
Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <warn> Activation (ttyUSB1) failed.  
Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <info> (ttyUSB1): device state change: failed -> disconnected (reason 'none') [120 30 0]  
Nov 13 20:54:52 alvin-AO722 NetworkManager[18276]: <info> (ttyUSB1): deactivating device (reason 'none') [0]

My modem must use ttyUSB0 according to the modem manual. How can I change it?
