How to unlock a Huawei E173 dongle to use on GG. Actually "E173u-1"

[ Edited ]

I have a Huawei E173 dongle supplied by Megafon and locked.  I now have cables to place this in the window so it should make using wireless broadband here viable, as the signal with my old slower dongle was poor.

Does anyone know how to unlock it?

Its probably locked to the Moscow area of Megafon, as in Russia each "Oblast" (region) is treated as different countries for roaming, even though all are still in Russia.  It might sound strange, but its a big place, and if Russia did not exist then Siberia would be the largest country on Earth.

Yes - perhaps I should have googled it too.

I was fairly obviously wanting it done free - so could you suggest a shop offering this price?
