when you say “mobile telephone phone card” what do you mean exactly?
is it a USB modem? and, if it is, does it also have space on the USB
device for storage?
[now i assume your “mobile telephone phone card” a USB modem]
the short story is modems are not ‘mounted’ (disks and other storage
devices are mounted)…

apparently you do have a multi-use USB device: modem & storage, and it
is the storage part of the device which is still in use after you have
“closed all other software” which i guess means you have closed your
browser, email client and what else? i ask, because as far as i know
you probably are not actually turning off all networking, are you?
anyway, the “eject button” (which i don’t have one of) is to unmount
the storage part AND, if you may have that storage location in use by
just having it displayed in any file manager/Dolphin…or, maybe
connected to a music or video player…or…
