The following steps will enable the use of your Wind Mobile Huawei U7519 as a 3G modem.
Recently I bought a Huawei U7519 phone on the Wind Mobile service. The phone tethers using Windows but what use is that to me? Here is how I made it work using Linux.
echo "option" >> /etc/modules
edit /etc/rc.local and add before exit 0: echo '12d1 101e' > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
Download and install the software as per the instructions at this link: http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/
You should be able to plugin your device and will have a /dev/ttyUSB0 (which you can confirm with ls /dev/ttyU*
Now you can right click your NetworkManager in the panel and edit connections > mobile broadband > add t-mobile internet then edit that profile like so: mobile broadband > apn = internet.windmobile.caalso edit PPP and deselect allow bsd .. and deselect allow deflate
You can also select connect automatically on the mobile broadband tab.

I recently bought an HP dv 7-1245ca laptop..
The specs are here for this machine. I am currently running Ubuntu 9.04, the development version of Ubuntu. I also run virtualbox on it with Opensolaris 2008.06 as the guest O/S ... I haven't had a chance to work out some issues precluding installation of OSOL as a dual-boot option.
