Usually i don't write technology but i figured this particular modem series has been making the waves and people are having problems with its drivers and installation.
I decided to take it upon myself to find a solution and i found it.

  1. Connect the vodafone modem with the original SIM and allow it to install the dashboard.
  2. When the installation is complete, check if the SIM card has been recognized, if not, download this software and install.
  3. Remove the sliding cover and check for the IMEI number.
  4. Download the huawei unlock calculator and use it to generate the unlock code for your modem.
  5. Enter the IMEI code to calculate the unlock code. 
  6. Copy the unlock code and not the flash code.
  7. Unplug the modem and change the SIM card to a different SIM on another network.
  8. Plug in the modem and after initialization, it will prompt you for "UNLOCK CODE". 
  9. Enter the 10 digit generated code from the unlock calculator.
  10. At this point, if the code was accepted, your modem is unlocked.
  1. For vodafone users, you may have to continue with the following steps. I have compiled a dashboard with the original huawei source code into a flasher or dashboard updater. This will help put the new working mobile partner interface onto the modem. Download the flasher or dashboard updater here.
  2. Just run the updater and flash the vodafone dashboard with the new dashboard. After completion, your modem is ready for use


  1. All the links are missing, and on a different note how are you supposed to download when you cant get onto the internet ?? as the device is not being recognised - so not really that helpful is it??

  2. Download works for me. Also, how can you complain about not being able to download because you can't get onto the Internet?

    The blog owner is being heplful by posting his solution, and all you can do is moan that he isn't helpful? How ungrateful.

    Just to to a friend's house and download the file....

  3. none of the software detects my data card in my case :(

  4. Hello!!
    I was wondering if anyone can help me.
    I've bought a Android tablet & I have a Vodafone pay as you go dongle (model K3770).
    When I put it into my tablet it asks for an APN number (which I know is: SMART) and it also asks for a device number which I don't know.
    I've been told its either: pp.internet OR pp.bundle OR pp.vodafone and I've also added on the end of all of these.
    Could anyone PLEASE help me out here?!?!
    I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

  5. By the way, I forgot to add that all of the device numbers I was given I have put in and they don't work.
    It's really confusing me.
    Please give me some ideas on how I find these out!!

  7. Hey thanks for this information :)

  8. Thank You so much, not only did this work, but this made me look good to my customer. Been trying all else from the net but this worked, I didn't even finish the solution. Step 2 and it worked from there. Great post. Thank you.
