If you're reading this, especially; on Aryk Enterprise Blog, it is most likely that you have unlocked your 3G modem and still finding it difficult to use the same 3G modem with other 3G service providers' SIM card other than the original service provider the modem is locked with. Well, if I'd guessed right, this is a trouble-shooting problem that happens following the unlocking of your 3G modem and to solve this; just make sure you read this page through and pay attention to the info being passed accross.

There are still some steps to take after you have unlocked your 3G modem. Either the modem is originally Glo Modem, MTN Fastlink Modem, Airtel Modem or any other modem in as much as you are not using it with the original service provider it came with.

Now, what is that you really have to do after you might have recieved your modem's unlock code and have had the modem unlocked as explained on How to Unlock your 3G Modem?

Step 1:- Once you have your modem's unlock code, insert another SIM CARD besides the SIM card of the network that originally provide you with the 3G service. For instance, let say you originally use MTN Fastlink modem. What you'll do is to reemove the MTN SIM in the modem and replace it with Glo, Zain or Etisalat SIM.

Step 2:- Plug your modem into your computer. After some seconds, you should then see a small window in which you can input the Unlock code.

***the box usually look like this above.

Step 3:- Type the unlock code correctly within the space provided in the box and click enter. If the unlock code is correct, the small window will disappear meaning that your 3G modem has been successfully unlocked.

NOTE: 3 Things/Signals to Beware of

1- The name of the network that owns the SIM card inserted should appear close to the network bars. For instance, lets say Glo is the new SIM. "GLO" should appear next to the network bars at the lower left corner.

2- You ONLY have 10 attempts to inpute the unlock code in other to have your modem unlocked. Hence, the modem would be locked forever.

3- If no windows prompting you to enter your modem's unlock code pop up, it means your modem is most likely not locked so, don't border if none appears.

How To Create Profiles For Each Network

Even after you have successfully unlocked your modem, you may still experience problem connecting to the internet using other networks' SIM card. Let say the modem before it is unlocked, it uses Glo and when unlocked you decide to using etisalat with it then; you have to create a new profile for etisalat, too on the modem.

To do this, click on "Tools" then "Options". From here select "Profile Management". and under Profile Management, click on New and fill in the following settings parameters for each network you want to setup.

  1. To create new profile in profile management new button should enable. But in mine that button doesnt enable. How to recover this problem?

    1. Hi Murali,
      Check that you still have lesser than 10 profiles within your profile management board. If more than that, delete some to give room for more.
