The following worked for me
sudo apt-get install usb_modeswitch
Make sure the huawei dongle is in the right mode with
lsusb, should be device-id 1506 (if your unfamiliar with this read some info about internet sticks+linux+usb_modeswitch)
ifconfig should show you an interface
wwan0, this is your dongle. You don't need to dial in or anything, just simply request an IP-address with:
sudo ip link set wwan0 up
Possibly you also have to call dhclient but for me the above was enough.
sudo dhclient wwan0
