It is not uncommon to find many people being frustrated with their network-specific 3G modems as such modems do not let you use another network’s sim-card in it, as the modem’s are locked to the particular network in which you bought it from.
In such scenario’s where the network you are tied to is down, it takes you down with it as you cannot but wait till the network is back up.
However, I am ready and willing to unlock all such modems for free to enable them work with any network’s sim-card, irrespective of the network it was initially tied to.
To enable me unlock your modem for free, kindly let me have your modem’s IMEI number and ‘Modem Type’ by dropping them in the comments section of this post.
