How To Unlock your 3G Huawei Internet Modem (MTN, ETISALAT, GLO and AIRTEL)

Today, I will be sharing with you on how can unlock your 3G Huawei internet modem.

Normally when you buy a new 3G internet modem from a service provider the modem will be locked to the network in order not to support or work on any other network. If you insert another network Sim card on it you would be asked to provide your unlock code all because it has been locked by the service provider. The unlock code allows you to bypass the modem in order to be able make use of another network Sim card on it.

How to get started
=> Firstly, you need to generate the unlock code.

And how do I generate the unlock code?
=> You can generate the unlock using a software called Master Unlocker.

=> The Master Unlocker is just like a calculator, it calculates your modem serial number and then generate an UNLOCK code which you can input on an Huawei modem to bypass.

  • Download Master Unlocker HERE
  • The Master Unlocker comes in a Zip format
  • Unzip the folder and then extract or double click the application named “Universal Mastercode
  • Immediately you extract or double click the “Universal Mastercode”, it run itself just like your pc calculator
  • Bring out your Huawei modem, at the back of the modem there is a IMEI number
  • Locate the IMEI number
  • On your Universal MasterCode application, erase the IMEI existing on the application and type in the IMEI number you found at the back of your modem

  • And then click on “Calculate
  • Immediately a result displays, copy the Unlock code in “UNLOCK” field to your notepad or write it some where
  • Remove the Sim card on your 3G Huawei internet modem and replace it with another network provider Sim card
  • That’s is, if your modem is MTN fastlink, remove the MTN sim card and insert Airtel, Glo or Etisalat
  • Plug the modem to your PC
  • A message displays asking for your unlock code
  • Paste the code generated from you “Universal Mastercode” ( UNLOCK CODE)to the unlock code field and click on OK

You have successfully unlocked your modem!

How do I configure my modem settings to make it work with all networks?
=> Go to your modem platform, select Tools and then Options. Click on Profile Management and then New.

=> Set the settings below for your preferred network

Profile Name: Glo Web
Tick on Static
APN: Gloflat
Leave others unchanged

Profile Name: MTN
Tick on Static
Leave others unchanged
Profile Name: AIRTEL
Tick on Static
Leave others unchanged

Profile Name: ETISALAT
Tick on Static
APN: Etisalat
Leave others unchanged

That’s all…
