I had a problem connecting to internet using huawei 3G modem D02HW inUbuntu Intrepid Ibex before. The modem was detected, I already set the gnome-ppp to use this setting:
username: em
password: em
phone number: *99***1#
Deveice: /dev/ttyUSB0
Type: USB Modem
Speed: 460800
Phone Line: tone
Volume: High
InitString: init2=>ATH0E1

but it still couldn’t connect to the internet. It kept saying waiting for prompt and then permission denied on /usr/bin/pppd bla bla bla.
Here is the solution: change the user privilage in System -> Administration -> User and Groups -> Unlock -> Insert your password -> Properties -> User Privileges -> Check “Connect to internet using a modem” -> OK -> Logout -> Login -> Try connect again, it should be working now.
