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.

use sakis 3g it's best and i use it for my micromax 3g modem..it works perfectly but sms service can't be used.
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
And after this you can get an Internet-connection with the tool "UMTSMon" :)
Easy and quick !
Thanks a lot.
