I connected Datacard to USB hub and USB hub to MacBook Pro USB port.
So, the problem is with MacBook Pro's new USB ports (USB 2.0 and 3.0 integrated in a single port) and Huawei E303C Datacard.
It is a hardware support issue with Huawei E303C Datacard.
I hope this will solve your problem too.

I have installed this update, But, still OS is not recognizing my 3G dongle.
I use Huawei E303C Datacard and MacBook Pro 13" i7 Mid 2012 model (With updated Mountain Lion OS).
Now, I use USB 2.0 hub for my Datacard.

I too have the same problem with the modem Huawei E3131 and Mountain Lion OSX, cant get it to work. If I buy a USB hub 2.0 what do I do then? Connect the USB hub to my macbookpro and then install the modem and the modem will then show up on the screen under network?

Connect the Huawei E3131 modem to the USB hub and USB hub to MacBook Pro USB port, Then install the 'Mobile Partner' app.
For Internet connection, you can either use the 'Mobile Partner' app or configure the modem in Network Settings.

Thank you Sandip.
The USB hub 2.0-- would that be powered or unpowered? Once I plug in the modem and the USB hub then what happens on the macbookpro screen? What is "MobilePartner" app? Will that show up somewhere on my screen automatically. Will the modem show up in network settings once the Hub is plugged in? Please pardon all these questions. I have a computer tech I.Q. of minus 6.

I just used an unpowered usb2 hub, then after plugging in my Huawei device, the storage appeared with the connection sw, which I had to install.
So the issue was simply the incompability of the usb3 of the Air.

Better to use an unpowered USB hub because you can take it anywhere with your MacBook pro.
'Mobile Partner' app comes built-in with the Huawei E3131 modem. It is a recommend app by Huawei and it has functionalities like connect/disconnect connection, balance check, make calls, text messages, settings, etc.
You do need to configure anything in network settings.
- Connect modem with MacBook Pro using USB 2.0 hub
- Modem's status light will start blinking in a pattern (Light color can be green (2G) or blue(3G))
- Wait for modem auto detection
- If 'Mobile Partner' app is not installed yet then it will show an installer. The installation process will install the required drivers and configure the Mobile Partner' app as per your inserted SIM in modem.
- If 'Mobile Partner' app is already installed then it will open the app and show the telecom company name as per your inserted SIM in modem.
- Now you are ready to go.
