Hey guys, today I will explain on how to unlock your internet modems so that you can use them on any Network. Sometimes ago, someone messaged on Whatsapp as regards to this and I decided to share how I unlocked my own without going for a Universal Modem at a costlier price.
Most MTN, Airtel, Etisalat, Glo Modems are made by Huawei so this method of unlocking the modem will work pretty well on any of them. But before I start there are some things we need to know or have in mind….
Firstly, make sure that your SIM card is detected on your desktop/laptop/PC and you should know your IMEI number (IMEI number is a 15 digit number printed on the device/modem). To know the 15 digit IMEI of your modem, see the back side of the modem.

Step 2… Now you will find some tabs (ZTE, NEC, NOKIA, HUAWEI etc) Just select your model, but like I said earlier most of this modems are Huawei Modems but still check to confirm before you decide on which to go with.
Step 3... Enter your 15 Digit IMEI number in Huawei tab, as shown in the below screen and press Calculate for Unlock Code and Flash Code
Step 4… Now Insert the SIM Card that is always rejected/Unaccepted SIM Card into your modem, then to your PC.
Note: For Some, it will prompt for an unlock code; If you experience that just insert the Unlock code you got from Universal Master code.exe.
Congratulations, your Modem is now unlocked and can be used with all SIM Cards.
