As you noticed, there is already a usb_modeswitch configuration for the USB ID 19d2:0083.
However, the scope of its application is narrowed to devices which have the string "WCDMA" in their product description. This applies to ZTE modem sticks.

Now, your phone's product description is "ZTE HSUSB Device". That's why usb_modeswitch will not do anything - the ID does not fully match.

The principal issue here is that phones may have selected the storage mode intentionally. It's not usb_modeswitch's business to interfere. Actually, there was a bug report regarding this: see bug #894448.
