Run the following commands in the terminal, to ...

12.04 Before proceeding ahead, I would say that I used ultimate edition linux 3.4 64 bit-- this distro has all the library and dependencies for installing drivers( ia32-libs, usb_modeswitch).

I can actually answer my own question now: it is possible to switch the stick into a "modem mode" where it presents 3 serial devices.
