@ Shirish,

Thanks for your feedback, I will consider it in future post.

I don't have any idea about that. I just want to show "End Users" that 
there are some configuration modification while upgrade. So please 
review / consider it before accepting it.

Yes, it is (Now Tata Photon+ also, but not tested).  But, NM is in buggy 
state, I have seen random crash bugs. I want to put perfect step by step 
information. In last kernel update (2.6.31-14-generic), it's detecting 
as USB-STORAGE. We can eject it then  insert it again, the we will have 
both together (Usb-storage / Mobile Broadband service) [1]. As i have 
written, i am working on that. I will sure post review about it.
