3g USB dongle (ZTE) Connection Software setttings for different UK networks

I write the following post based on my experience, if there is any mistake, please kindly email me at sales@kingmobilephone.com and I will then amend it.

After you have unlocked your dongle, in order to use the dongle on a new network provider, you need generic ZTE  internet Connection software.

Download it here ->ZTE Connection Software

Note: At the moment, the Huawei Mobile Partner Software only works on Window XP, Vista or Window 7.

Open the software and Click the setting icon

input the new service provider internet settings, here I use a O2 UK as example ( I use dynamic APN, but if dynamic APN doesn't work to you, try the static APN option).

There are only two things you need to input

1) Dial Number:

It is always *99# or *99***1#

2)APN Settings


you can leave it blank (if it doesn't work, then you will have to type in the APN info I listed below)

 Press SAVE

Press connect icon




Here are some commonly use APN settings in UK networks:

Username: web
Password: web
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank
APN:  mobile.o2.co.uk
Username: web
Password: web
APN: general.t-mobile.uk                   
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank

APN: three.co.uk
Username: leave blank 
Password:leave blank

For three UK, you may also download the 3connect (3 UK officaial connection software). 
Download here

Install the software and make sure the old default ZTE connection software is closed otherwise the 3connect will conflict with your old connection software.

Click connect.

If the above settings dont work, try using the APN without a username and password
Companies such as ASDA, Tesco, Virgin Mobile etc who re-sell the above networks under their own brand will usually have a different APN e.g. ASDA (who use Vodafone) is ‘asdamobiles.co.uk’. Please contact the operator for details or check their website.
