I recently upgraded from Tata Photon+ to Tata Docomo Photon 3G, however Ubuntu is not recognizing the device itself. I tried manually adding the device in Mobile Broadband section, using different APNs and Service provider names as suggested in few earlier questions. The device is ZTE MF 190 (hsupa). What do i do?

Are you sure that ubuntu doesn't recognize the device at all? Post the output of dmesg | tail after inserting the device. –  nikhil Feb 8 '13 at 10:42

@TataDOCOMO Customer care is not at all helpful with respect to postpaid connections. It took me 2 days and multiple calls just to know the process of getting a connection activated. –  AsheeshR Feb 16 '13 at 8:18

@TataDOCOMO if you provide support for Ubuntu, why not leave instructions to help any of your users that find this post, otherwise just dropping a phone number, is painting a very poor image of your company. –  Mateo_ Feb 16 '13 at 18:59

Have you tried using sakis3g? –  IgnitE Feb 17 '13 at 8:33

Is there any update to this? Tata Photon 3G is not working on my ubuntu device. The interesting part is Reliance 3G(same model dongle) works brilliantly without any problems. –  Tojo Chacko Jun 8 '13 at 10:08
