In my previous article, I discussed how to unlock huawei modems. These modems are popular with mtn and glo networks though etisalat and airtel have a few of them. ZTE modems are common with etisalat though the other networks also issue out some of them. These ZTE modems have a less beautiful user interface (at least in my opinion) compared with that of huawei modems.
Unlike huawei modems, ZTE modems can't be unlocked using the unlock codes, or probably because the codes calculated by the softwares I’ve used to far must be wrong. You must be wondering then how to go about unlocking ZTE modems. You need software to do the unlocking. This software doesn't calculate the unlock code for ZTE modems rather it unlocks it directly. The name of this software is dc-unlocker. Some websites refer to it as dccrap. So how do you use it?
Like I said in the post on how to unlock huawei modems, you insert an alien SIM card into the modem, and then plug it into your computer. Then open up the dc-unlocker. Under “select manufacturer”, select ZTE data cards. Under “select model”, select the model of the modem or leave it on “auto detect”. If the model of your modem isn’t listed there, then select “unknown ZTE modem”. After you must have made these selections, click on the photo with the magnifying glass icon on it. Then click on “unlocking” and then click on unlock. Voila! It’s as simple as that.
