make your 3G usb modem work
Most 3G USB Modems with a Micro SD slot will not work on Mint.
Linux is confused whether the USB dongle is a flashdisk/modem/CD-ROM
Here's the solution:
Go to the Terminal and enter this code:
sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch
this will install both the usb-modeswitch and the usb-modeswitch-data. Alternatively, you can just go the Software Manager and install usb-modeswitch.

|Is there any way to know the dongle balance of mts in linux mint. I used windows in which there was a dialog box of mts which has the option of determining the balance. But I am unable to locate any such option in Linux Mint.|

If you are using Huawei 3G modem then you can install HUAWEI Data Cards Linux Driver . You can get it from http://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/downloads/detail/index.htm?id=13971

I used sakis3g alot!
its a script like UMTSMon which connects
to your 3G-GSM-Device!
#if you prefere bash-mode
sakis3g CONNECT USBDEVICE APN="three.at"
#otherwise it starts a graphical interface
