I have found the solution :D
the problem is on the network manager, the version 0.7.1 is only RC and don't detect the device.
Just downgrade to 0.7.0 and use gcom to register your modem in the network
"sudo /usr/bin/gcom -d /dev/ttyUSB2"

if you want to plug the modem with the pc turned on upgrade to kernel 2.6.29 and it works just fine ;)
