In most cases, if you buy your modem from a particular 3G Service provider, you may have to unlock the modem before you can be able to use any other network's SIM card with the modem other than the SIM Cards original service provider supports. However, you may unlock the modem in such a way that you might be able to use the huawei modem with most other SIM cards.
Now, following the unlocking of the modem, there is another important step you should take before you are able to access the internet using the modem with any other service provider's SIM card you may have chosen to using with the modem.
To set up or prepare the modem for the first internet connection using another SIM card, you have to configure the modem manually first and below, you can see the illustrative step by step process on how to configure your huawei modem for internet access using another 3G service provider SIM card.
