order a "hybrid" sim which can be used as a standard sim or can be pinched into a micro sim :smileyhappy:

Re: Huawei E353 unlock

I know this is an old thread, but I found a way to unlock this dongle and thought I would pass the information on. Although it's not free, it's pretty cheap. First of all download DC-Unlocker from here and then buy some credits, you will need about 7 credits to unlock the dongle. Once it is unlocked you will need to download the newest version of Huawei's mobile partner from here. Once you have the software installed you will need to go into settings > options > Profile Management. Create a new profile (you'll need a static APN, a roaming one won't work), then enter the APN settings (APN = giffgaff.com, User = giffgaff, Pass = password) and you will be able to use this dongle on Giffgaff

Why don't you put it in the "unlocking" section?

Re: Huawei E353 unlock

I've got an unlocked Huawei E353 but the GiffGaff sim is not working in it.

I get a glue flashing light and the dongle displays a decent connection on the application but not connectivity.

Any ideas?
