Emergency Update (16-04-12)
Recently one of my friend purchased Vodafone dongle for internet access but he was not satisfy. He wants to access internet for unlimited not for just 1 or 2 GB per month. Because he always download YouTube videos and 1 or 2 GB of internet is not sufficient for him. He wants to use Aircel internet on Vodafone. Aircel internet plan is much cheaper and it also gives unlimited internet access. But the problem is how to use Aircel SIM on Vodafone dongle. Vodafone dongle is not allowing using any other SIM on it. Initially he was very disappointed but I told him, my friend there is one solution is present. After listen my voice he came into life.
