Is it possible to unlock the E220 - it is currently locked to Vodafone but when abroad, I can buy a local sim for data usage only at a much cheaper rate than roaming with the Vodafone sim in it but at the moment the card will only accept the Vodafone sim
Many thanks

You have to download the generic software for the modem and configure APN.

You can use a program called "KK_MClient.exe" which you can find in the net. Then go to site and pay for 15 credits (15 Euros). Send them an email and ask for login and password details. Open the program connect Huawei modem (do not gorget to remove sim card) and it will unlock it in about 15 seconds. Works great. You can also get the Firmware and Dashboard upgrades from their site, although there are later versions on other sites. The Firmware upgrade will boost the modem to 7.2 Mbps. Completed mine today and am using it now, works great.

Out of interest - do DC-Unlocker charge for using their service?

The Huawei site for generic software is most confusing - there appear to be three different pieces of software:

E220 Client Software WINMACB300D00SP02C03 (UTPS11[1]. for WinXP&2K&Vista & Mac (8007 KB) 20-Mar-2008

E220 Client Software UTPSB002D03SP16C03 for WinXP&2K&Vista (7115 KB) 20-Mar-2008

E220 Client Software HOSTB107D05SP00C03 for WinXP&2K&Vista (13856 KB) 20-Mar-2008

Which one should I use for GSM network?

Lastly - has anyone managed to download and open the E220 manual? I can only download it as an "application/octet-stream". It appears to a PDF file, but Adobe Acrobat doesn't want to open it ...

Gotta observe that I really find Huawei to be somewhat opaque - when you download anything you have to try and guess what sort of a file it is (no file extensions) and I would have thought they might have explained the difference between the above packages ...
