In the GUI Mode it's easy to connect via Network Manager, But how to connect to internet with this modem in the Text Mode?

wvdial to connect to my 3G modem as below:
install wvdial :
sudo apt-get install wvdial
wvdial.conf file by any text editor say
gedit by below command:
sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
copy paste the following lines in wvdial.conf
[Dialer a] Modem Type = Analog Modem Phone = *99# ISDN = 0 Baud = 460800 Username = " " Password = " " Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 Init1 = ATZ Init2 = at+cgdcont=1,"ip","your apn" Stupid Mode = 1
4 connect using ( you can change the name as you want by replacing a in above
(just add apn according to isp you are using like aircelgprs for aircel, bsnnet for bsnl etc. in
wvial.conf file in place of "your apn")
It is a very basic UI for Network Manager. More convenient than "nmcli" IMHO.
