Wow, been years since I used wvdial but always enjoyed working it. Mine was an Actiontec external serial modem. I never tried a USB model. Just looking around, I found this:
Perhaps it may shed some insight. Sorry I couldn't do more.

Few years back - these steps worked for me. I'm not sure whether it works or not now.

Thank you Dapper Dan and Lakshmipathi for your replies! Unfortunately I forgot the modem in the office today, but I will make sure to try this out tomorrow morning and then get back to you!

I have a ZTE AC682 and Huawei modem should be similar to that.
On the users desktop I can see the "MobilePartner" (automounted) disappear for about five seconds and then come back. What am I doing wrong here?
sudo chmod -x /usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch
udisks --mount /dev/sr1
Try removing your modem from USB port, then disable usb modeswitch and try again. It may help.
