    Just install 'gnome-ppp' or 'kpp'
    Never make any misteaks.

    I configured my cousin's airtel connection on laptop long ago, i called him and got the settings. hes still using it. try it and it may work.
    Init1 = AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”airtelgprs.com”,”",0,0
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    stupid mode = 1
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    Baud = 460800
    New PPPD = yes
    Modem = (your modem)
    ISDN = 0
    Phone = *99#
    Password = a
    Username = a
    Use these settings.
    you can setup all these in Kppp or gnome-ppp both.

    Are you using kppp or gnome-ppp? gnome-ppp is better in most cases.
    once you connect your phone in modem mode.
    do
    # sudo lsusb
    and see if it lists. if it does modem device is added in your /dev
