How to enter 3g dongle / modem unlock code

How to input the unlock code we gave you ?

After you put the sim card from another network, if the unlock code screen doesn't pop up on the computer screen as the branded dongle blocks the unlock code entering function

There are two things you can do

1) Download and install original connection software

After you open the connection manager with different sim card, a screen will pop up and ask for the unlock code


Input the new network settings

After you unlock your modem, next thing you should do is to input the NEW connection settings from another network provider. You have to use the new connection manager software (Mobile Partner)
