Hi,

New on here but I have searched the forum and I cannot find the answer but I have an old Vodafone 3G Mifi device, Huawei R201 model.

Does anyone know whether these can be unlocked as I am not having much success?

Thanks

Have you requested a Nuc @ralnavman  ?

These threads explain how to unlock a dongle that's been supplied by Vodafone.

Thank you for your help.

I have had to request it numerous times. They claim every time that they have to get it from the manufacturer, then nothing more heard, chase up and start the process all over again. Registered a complaint who now says that these can't be unlocked, hence my question. Trying to find out if anyone else has succeeded in having a R201 unlocked.

Hey @ralnavman 

Sorry to hear you've been unable to unlock your device!

As you've already registered your complaint with the correct team, they will provide you with the final resolution which seems to be that they're unable to unlock it for you. 

Apologies if this wasn't the outcome you were looking for!
