Hacking Idea Net Setter for use on other networks

Emergency Update (14-04-12)

Last year I had purchased Idea Netsetter 2G Modem worth of 1600 rupees but I did not get much speed that I desired form my idea. In reality they are talking more money from us to access internet. For 1GB 199 rupees, I think so it is higher price in compare to other service provider so that I finally decided to switch to other service like Aircel. But how could it possible. If you are in my state then simply follow these steps.

There are many processes to unlock the Huawei USB data card here I am explaining few of them.

Method 2: 
Universal MasterCode 
As its name suggest, Universal MasterCode is capable of generating unlock codes for a wide range of device, which of course includes most of Huawei’s modem.

As you can see, the unlock code generated is the same as the one generated by the online unlock key generator above. There is no limit how many unlock codes you can generate, meaning as long as you have this generator on your computer, you can unlock as many modems as you wish. No installation is required. Just download and start the application.

Method 3: 
Huawei Unlocker
Huawei Unlocker is another simple and straight forward free unlock code generator. Enter your modem’s IMEI, hit the “Unlock” button and consider yourself done. Again, no installation required.

Unlocking the Modem with the Unlock Code 
To make use of the unlock code; insert an unauthorized SIM card to your Huawei modem. Unauthorized SIM card meaning SIM card from any operators other than the one the modem is currently locked to. When you do so, you would be prompt for the modems unlock code. Just enter the unlock code you have received earlier and voila, you can now use your Huawei USB modem with SIM cards from any other operator.

If your modem doesn’t prompt:
If your modem doesn’t prompt for the unlock code even after you have inserted an unauthorized SIM, you can use any of these two code writer tools:

How to make it connect to Aircel? The first time, it connected by default but later just refused to. Here’s the jugged to set up your Idea Net Setter for use with an Aircel (or for that matter any other, provided you have the requisite details) connection, if it doesn’t do so by itself

Change connection settings on Idea Net Setter/Huawei USB Modem

1.Run the Idea Net Setter application, then go to Tools > Options > Profile Management and then click on the Edit button on the right and then make the following changes to the entries there: 

2.Profile name (default: Idea) change it to Aircel (or whatever that you want to call it as). 

3.Keep the Static radio button under APN chosen 

4.In the APN field (default: internet) write (for pre-paid connection) or aircelgprs.po (for post-paid connection).

5.Change the access number (default: *99#) to *99***1# 

6.Leave the User Name and Password fields empty. 

7.Then click on the Save button, followed by the Set as Default button and then the ok button. Now try to connect. And things should work fine.
