Unlock USB dongles

I'm looking for some forums on how to unlock my Huawei E1552 from Globe Telecom. I got this link where it provides me several ways on how to unlock it on my own. Fortunately I got an unlock code for my device. But unfortunately when I try to insert a different SIM on it, it doesn't ask me for an unlock code. I tried to modify some of its xml files but nothing helps...


I think this will work on those dongles you bought on year 2009 and below where upgrade on firmware is not yet available.


By the way, here is the link... http://www.sheeptech.com/how-to-unlock-huawei-usb-modem-for-free

Update: My quest to unlock my Globe Tattoo Huawei E1552 failed. Even changing its firmware failed. Good heavens it still works. Lesson learned: Don't buy usb dongles from Globe if you want to unlock it in the future or when it's warranty ends. I'll try my luck with my Sun Wireless Broadband USB Dongle.


You may check this link. This site contains the tools you need to unlock your Broadband USB Modems (except Huawei E1552 of Globe Tattoo as its firmware was customized by Globe themselves). Just browse...

Update again: I tried to unlock my Sun Broadband wireless Huawei E1550. I was able to key-in the Unlock code for the device. It worked! I could insert other sims there. But for some reasons, which I don't know, I can't send SMS to it using my Smart sim. I also noticed that the Firmware code is not used at all. I wonder...then I read this blog. From the steps it had enumerated, it says that I should update first the firmware of my device to be able to unlock the firmware by the Firmware code. The last step is to insert a different sim to the device to display the prompt for the Unlock code. Too late... but anyways, it is already open line... i hope I could send SMS here...


Well, that's it folks... hope it helps...
