Default How to make EDGE USB Modem work in Linux?

In The Name Of Allah The compassionate merciful

Good day all ;
Have a EDGE USB Modem and want to connect internet with it .
It has a drive that contain a driver and windows users install it and go ..

Someone told me use usb_modeswitch :

mode switching data for usb-modeswitch

Several new USB devices have their proprietary Windows drivers onboard,
especially WAN dongles. When plugged in for the first time, they act
like a flash storage and start installing the driver from there. If
the driver is already installed, the storage device vanishes and

a new device, such as an USB modem, shows up. This is called the
"ZeroCD" feature.

On Debian, this is not needed, since the driver is included as a
Linux kernel module, such as "usbserial". However, the device still

shows up as "usb-storage" by default. usb-modeswitch solves that
issue by sending the command which actually performs the switching
of the device from "usb-storage" to "usbserial".

Now , don't know how to use usb_modeswitch ?
have read man and did so > sudo usb_modeswitch -v 05c6 -p 0015
*but result says #
Warning: no switching method given.

Did so but lsusb does not show anything changed :

sudo usb_modeswitch -v 05c6 -p 0015 -V 05c7 -P 0016 -H -s -R

Looking for target devices ...
*No devices in target mode or class found
Looking for default devices ...
*Found devices in default mode or class (1)
Accessing device 005 on bus 004 ...
Using endpoints 0x01 (out) and 0x81 (in)

Using endpoints 0x01 (out) and 0x81 (in)
Not a storage device, skipping SCSI inquiry

USB description data (for identification)
Manufacturer: Global Mobile
**** Product: Global Mobile

* Serial No.: 1234567890ABCDEF
Sending Huawei control message ...
*OK, Huawei control message sent
-> Run lsusb to note any changes. Bye.

Will be thankful if you guide me .
