vodafone12d1 ( Huawei modem )

Simple if the modem comes up in connection manager then you have access to the modems setup script
you can browse in Windows or Linux to this address to find your modems start page and this lovely page comes up. Its interesting from a perspective it comes up as a network on the interface instead of a USB device ( but lsusb will pick it up and give the usual Huawei id of 12d1 ) but because its a network setup its much more user friendly for Android and Linux devices as you just use the same web interface as windows does instead of tricky win32 programs like the older modems use. (click image below for larger )

ifconfig should come up with some
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:fe:10:1f:00:00  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::21e:10ff:fe1f:0/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:46550 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:36807 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:33275615 (33.2 MB)  TX bytes:5919051 (5.9 MB)

This gives you the hint to check interface at and magic the page above appears and you have access
now to the nice SMS tools to send and receive them on the tab SMS in the web interface provided.
  I probably could have looked in the manual for this but i had bought the WIFI version at the same time ( suspicious of WIFI devices as my area has regular levels of over 70 percent humidity and if your area has that level too i would steer away from WIFI as it just shuts down in my hardened anti government bunker and refuses to do anything at any reasonable speed ) 

Below is a plugin for the modem config page using Chrome browser ( under Linux can't run under windows cause they disallow it at the Chrome store )

The three come up as above with 3 buttons with the letter P you can see also my G rabbit buttons for gmail and W buttons for twitter and facebook ( for phone is suppose can't remember why i chose that letter )anyway just right click and you get something at the menu top saying Vodafone Usage stats and you can left click ( just easier than a bookmark for quick access )
