The easiest way is to copy an existing config file like "12d1:1583", put it in "/etc/usb_modeswitch.d" and change the name to "12d1:1591".

That should make the modem switch the next time you insert it. To check if it worked, either run the "dmesg" command line tool repeatedly or enable usb_modeswitch's logging in "/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf" (with a text editor).

Once you know the "target" USB ID you can adapt it in the "12d1:1591" file, by using a simple text editor.
