if you have received the error message 'not the one we are interested 
about' in your 'dmesg' when you try to use the HCF USB driver, it is 
quite possible that you have installed the right driver for your modem 
but you have hit a known issue with the driver.

To fix it, please edit the file 
'/usr/lib/hcfusbmodem/modules/imported/include/usbhalos.h' and change 
these lines:

#define USB_AAPL_VENDOR_ID          0x05AC
#define USB_AAPL_PRODUCT_ID         0x8202
#define USB_CNXT_VENDOR_ID          0x0572
#define USB_CNXT_PRODUCT_ID         0x1290


#define USB_AAPL_VENDOR_ID          0xAC05
#define USB_AAPL_PRODUCT_ID         0x0282
#define USB_CNXT_VENDOR_ID          0x7205
#define USB_CNXT_PRODUCT_ID         0x9012

Save the file and re-compile the HCF USB modules with the 'hcfusbconfig 
-k' command in a root shell.
