Huawei E303C 3G Modem is working with Ubuntu 13.04 & 13.10 USB 3.0

I am using Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit and i have a Huawei E303c 3G modem also. This 3G dongle is doesn’t work with USB 3.0. Its works fine with USB 2.0 in the same version of OS. Once i connect this dongle in USB 3.o its not detected after i start to watching dmesg syslog

I created the appropriate mobile broadband connection manually, but I cannot enable it in network manager, since the device is not recognized as mobile broadband. It has some problem in USB mode switch.

After that i found solution in a UBUNTU form,

I follow this commands,

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install wvdial 
sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

After that finish the upgrade and reboot my computer and i connect my USB modem in USB 3.0 port

start watching dmesg and syslog.

Finally i got it and it detected  as ttyUSB device and network-manager options also enabled.

It is recognizes as usb mobile broadband modem as ethernet connection. I created the appropriate mobile broadband connection manually,
