How to unlock modem online without software

How to unlock modem online without software: Most modems come customized to a particular network as a kind of branding for their products. This customization restricts you the user from using the modem on other networks. Unlocking a SIM locked modem is a sure way of using one particular modem on several networks both within and outside your country. So simply saying, unlocking a modem will make it universal and eliminate any sort of restrictions on it.

So many people have been searching the internet for means of unlocking their modems.  So many times they arrived at posts that require them to download one software or the other to be able to generate a code to unlock their modems. Today I am going to teach you how you can unlock modem online without software.

How to unlock modem online without software:

This post is definitely a simply one if you follow my instructions carefully. To unlock any modem you need an unlock code. Every modem has a unique 15-digit code called the IMEI number. It is with this number that the unlock code for any modem can be calculated. Note the IMEI code for your modem because you will soon be needing it. There are different types of USB modems but mostly we use Huawei and ZTE.

There are two ways you can calculate the unlock code of your modem online without software with just the IMEI code.  The first is using a website called a-zgsm. For Huawei modems click here , for ZTE modems click here. All you need to do is visit the appropriate link for your modem type and enter the IMEI and security code provided on the site and click on calculator below to generate your unlock code.

    used that bb5 site and it successfully unlocked my f@st link. But my etisalat zte mf180 modem took me 3 days to unlock! had to use a software(dc unlocker with crack or dc crap for short) instead. some modems are XTREMELY STUBBORN. if d tips here(on this site) dont work for your modem then google dc crap then download it.

    I have been using bb5 ever since to unlock my modems and i am yet to come across any modem that wont be unlocked by bb5. Dc crap is also an awesome softare i earlier was using it before i met bb5.

  5. Nwosu Mavtrevor says

    Yes but not always… you can follow the instruction given in this post to also unlock your ZTE even without installing any program on your system.

  6. Nwosu Mavtrevor says

    I cant say about Telstra for sure since i have never used it before. But i am certain it works for Hauwei and ZTE USB modems. Maybe you should try it out and tell us here…

  7. Suzanne says

    No :-( it didn’t work even when I put 0000 infront to make it a 16 digit code. Guess it will just have to become landfill as well. Pity. I would have paid $30 to unlock but they want $100.

    Thanks for your help.
