Hello Fabián,

Thank you for filing the bug. I am also using the same model USB Modem with the the same ISP (Natcom). What is odd is that for at least the first month using Precise Pangolin it worked without a hitch. Since then I've been using Sakis3G as a workaround. This morning out of curiosity I researched the issue again and found this thread on configuring the modem via usb_modeswitch (which also worked for me for previous releases of Ubuntu, but not Precise!):

I haven't tried it yet, either, but hopefully it will come in useful for others.
