My friend just installed on opensuse 10.3 a huawei 3G usb modem (3.5G actually), and just now noticed that opensuse does have a support page.

SDB:HUAWEI E220 Support - openSUSE

It took him a long time but now he found it simple although he did not follow any of the steps in the above howto.

For those who still like to thinker with the prompt here goes an alternative way that I collected from this link:

[3G_Tutorial] Huawei Card E620/E220 - Techzone

In OpenSuSE 10.3 (64 bits) the kernel version supports the device.

It basically says the following:

connect to the usb the device and then make as root

Code:
lsubs
after a couple of seconds a new line appears that corresponds to the modem:

Bus 004 Device 012: ID 12d1:1003

The ID part is the important one.

now is a good time to for example shutdown ethernet configs ...

make

Code:
ifdown eth0
or whatever your wired/wireless connection requires.

Now the important:

Code:
rmmod usb-storage && modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1003
basically the modem is ready to run.

I made it run with kppp and my config works for vodafone in Portugal, elsewhere some parameters obviously must change.
It is very simple:

The link above shows the wvdial config and it work ok.

In the connection make a new connection with:

*99***1#

Authentication: PAP/CHAP

- IP : dynamic
- Gateway: default gateway, and check the box :
assign the default route to this gateway
- DNS
Authomatic
check: Disable existing DNS servers


In Kppp modem section make a new modem with

/dev/ttyUSB0
Hardware[CRTSCTS0]
Line termination CR
Connection speed 460800
Check use lock file

- Check wait for dial tone before dialing
busy 0sec

- in modem commands:

if your card requires a PIN then init1 = AT+CPIN=1324 (pin number)

I place one of the clone sim cards I use (one for the Nokia E90 another for the huawei dongle) on the Nokia E90 and removed the PIN protection.

init2 = ATZ

All other parameters in this panel where default.

Before we can dial there was one last problem:

pppd gave an error both on kppp as well as on wvdial

pppd unrecognized option 'passwordfd'

I realized that all peers in /etc/ppp/peers had a call to the plugin passwordfd.so in their files except
/etc/ppp/peers/wvdial

So I edited /etc/ppp/peers/wvdial and placed a new line at the top:

Code:
plugin passwordfd.so
after that both wvdial with the config from the initial link and kppp worked ok !

And good friends: 3.5G Rocks ... 1.5Mb/s !!!

Regards

Isnt the HUAWEI ETS1201 FWT is a modem? How will you change its phone number then? And doesnt all this modem come in locked version and even if it is possible to change the phone no. then you will have to unlock it, which can be done at any local mobile repair shop, but that will cost you some money and it is risky as well.

No it can use as a Phone & Modem. I use it as a phone ( Both voice & Fax) now i need to Change one service provider to another one. That why i need to reprogram it.

Example :- If current service provider is "A" Now i need to change Another service Provider called "B".

Well, what i have heard is that if you want to change your service provider of your Huawei 3G modem then you need to unlock your modem. Check the step by step tutorial that is explained in the below links that will let you know how to unlock any Huawei modem for free: Unlocking Huawei E220 HSDPA modem
