This page is old, but left here to show how it used to be done. Today you would typically use your mobile phone to create a hotspot and connect your computer to it.

When Ubuntu starts up it asks you for the PIN of your UMTS card. Enter it to unlock the card. Next, click on the NetworkManager icon in the upper right, it looks like this: . Then click on "New GSM mobile broadband connection" -> choose your country (in this case Germany) -> choose your carrier (in this case T-Mobile) -> ok

You see how NetworkManager's icon turns into a connectivity status Networkmanagericon-worked.png and internet works.
