I was checking this website http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/3gdongle#switching_usb_mode
Try with it and let us know if it works.
usb_modeswitch -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/<file>
I tried to install the usb_modemswitch but still didnt work..
I will keep trying to find on internet what to do, seems like some other people also has same problem
Thank-you for your answer
Also try writing udev rules to mount your USB dongle as a dongle and not as any other device.
I will connect to my dongle through serial using AT commands, so wvdial wont be necessary. My problem was dongle connecting as other device.
I will try your link this weekend and give you feedback.

After a looooooooooooooong weekend with a friend he could manage to work.
The only way to make usb_modeswitch to work was following the steps from edison_bsp_ug (downloaded from intel home page) making a Yocto recipe from scratch.
Now the modem works and I connect via serial and AT commands.
Now I have to start to find the reason why if I reboot Edison a error shows up when try to type lsusb: "unable to initialize libusb: -99"
and the only way to fix that is removing and placing USB dongle back again and rebooting
You could check the processes with "ps" before unplugging and after plugging the USB dongle, when you find the process that is allowing the function of the dongle you could enable it as a service at boot. There are several threads in the communities about how to start a service at boot or running a script at boot.
