Most service providers sell customized huawei modems which they’ve already programmed to work only on their network. You might get a prompt to enter an unlock code if you try to use a sim from another service provider on these USB modems. There are several ways to unlock these huawei modems though.
Some kind person in a web forum might create a topic on this, asking people to drop ther modem’s IMEI number but the best way to do it is DOING IT YOURSELF!
