How to Enter Unlock Code into your Old Huawei Modem?

You can follow these steps to get your modem unlock:

  1. Insert a non-Current Provider Network (e.g. non-Vodafone SIM for Vodafone Network, non-Optus SIM for Optus Network) SIM card into the device. (Current Provider Network is the network that the device locked to).
  2. Ensure the device is charged and then switch the device on. It will display “Invalid SIM”
  3. Establish a WiFi connection to the device with your PC/IPAD/IPHONE/Android Device.
  4. Any of the following methods:
  • Browse any website and you will be redirected to 192.168.1.1/simlock.asp and prompted to input the 8 digits unlock code. Or you can try to access 192.168.1.1/simlock.asp directly to input the unlock code. Once you key in the unlock code and the modem will reset itself. Your modem is now unlocked.
  • Access and login to your device’s dashboard at http://192.168.1.1 or http://pocket.wifi then go to Advanced Settings -> SIM Settings  -> Unlock Device -> Enter Unlock Code -> Click Apply. This should unlock your device.
