What do you mean it would not connect? – Hashken Mar 14 '14 at 3:25

Ideally once you insert your dongle; in the Network Manager Application Indicator list (on the top bar of your screen), you should now have an option something like "Create new CDMA connection". Click that and the setup wizard should open.
