What can i do ?

Here is usb_modeswitch log  :

I made the modem run on olinuxino micro but using a different kernel. The kernel you have does not have ppp or usb serial support.
The one that Janni uses will auto usb_modswitch your modem without any input from you, during boot.
I use "huawei k3772" 3g modem but i think yours is also supported.

Jani has a nice tutorial on compiling the kernel with 3g modem support:

But if you do not want to do that just download it from here(i use "3.8"):

Then, I would suggest you use PPP and not wdialer as PPP is more stable and more automated, i used this tutorial:
