I don't seem to be able to create a ttyUSB0 for my 3g card

I have tried the following and am lost as to what to do next?

root@Pineapple:/# ls /dev/ttyUSB*
ls: /dev/ttyUSB*: No such file or directory
root@Pineapple:/# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 12d1:1c1f Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
root@Pineapple:/# insmod usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x1c1f
insmod: can't insert 'usbserial': File exists
Can anyone help? I'm very much still learning.
Thank you
Paul

Here is the 3g script Im using, I have adapted a script for another huawei modem I found on this forum:

#!/bin/sh

# 3G Connection Script for WiFi Pineapple. "Does the thing"

# Novatel MC760 (Ting) -dkitchen
# Sierra 598u (Ting) -brianzimm
# And more.

echo "

# --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Check for known usb modem vendor and product IDs then switch 'em from storage to serial modem mode
