How to remove SIM Card PIN from your GSM/UMTS modem on Ubuntu (Linux)

If your GSM modem SIM Card is configured with a PIN a NetworkManager is constantly trying to ask for that PIN on every wake up... and this is quite annoying indeed. So the easy way to remove a PIN protection from your SIM Card under Ubuntu would be:
sudo apt-get install gsm-utils
sudo gsmctl -d /dev/ttyACM0 -o unlock sc all 1234
here 1234 is actually your SIM Card PIN to be removed.

Thanks!

Under Ubuntu 12.10 x64, I found my GSM modem under /dev/ttyUSB0

Just check dmesg for the device path after plugging it in.
