It sounds like the modem isn't "handshaking" properly, or it doesn't
return to command mode when it should.
You didn't say exactly what model modem you are using, but from your
lsusb dump it looks like you have a Huawei. I see some Ubuntu
documentation for a Huawei E220
It looks like the recommended initialization strings are different
from the ones you are using, so you might try making your wvdial
configuration look like the examples -- notice especially the line
that says "Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2" -- some of those parts
after ATQ0 are probably important for its correct operation.
