Welcome to Vodafone Community
I'd like to unlock my K5160 - I have the NUC, but don't know what you do next! Where do I input the code? I can't find anywhere in the Windows 10 app, and I don't get a prompt, despite trying several different PCs.
Thank you in advance for your help!
According to this page here unlock-vodafone-k5160-huawei-dongle-use-another-sim-card by inserting another sim card that's active ie connects to mobile network data it should then take you to another specific unlock page.
If it isn't then try using the dongle on another computer with different windows or OS X on it.
Current Phone > Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G - SM9860 Snapdragon.
Samsung One Ui 3.1 / Android 11.
If you go to this page How to use your Network Unlock Code and choose Huawei you will be able to find instruction on how to use the code.
However, the information here will help, it will be for the Huawei R207 but should still work for your device.
If you have any further problem using the code please contact Vodafone through the Customer Service channels and they will help.
Thanks for the suggestions - in the end this turned out to be far more simple than I thought (probably why there's no documentation about it!).
I plugged the dongle into my Linux computer and it was detected as an Ethernet card. The gateway address was 192.168.9.1 - I just opened that address in a browser, and unlocked it from the web interface!
This would have worked on a windows PC as well I think, but because I didn't know which IP address I needed to go to, I wasn't able to figure it out.
Hope this helps someone!
