  1. Dear Kamalesh
    As described I tried unlocking my Tata Photon +EC 156 modem. In the firmware update session, it didn’t ask for any updater code. But updating completed and finally got the message “Update success! New version: 11.106.00.06.000 MEID: A00000E2E143E3E” In the CDMA Workshop session I selected “R-UIM only” and completed the process. Disconnected the modem and restarted with Reliance CDMA card in it. It again showing Tata photon signel and when tried to connect internet, it not connected and showed username and password error. I clicked the settings tab to change the profile settings, settings not opening. Before unlocking I can click settings and can view Tata photon profile settings. Without UIM card in it, modem is not catching any signals. I tried the same after reinstalling the dialer. Please help me with your suggestions.
    Keep going with new techs for new modems.
    Regards, Manoj

    • Select RUIM if available, i think your setting was not saved successful, do the process of CDMA workshop again.

    • I have tried but still it shows network signal after onlocking without RUIM. If I will insert RUIM no network. tried RUIN of Reliance CDMA n Tata Indicom. Kindly advise

      • you cant do anything now, go to tata indicom’s office and tell them what u did, they will charge you some amount and will get it in a perfect condition

  2. Dear Kamalesh

    Thanks a lot. Its working fine with Reliance CDMA. When IT tried with BSNL CDMA uim activated with EVDO pack connected on cdma/ hybrid option selected its connected but the speed is very slow.

    Regards, Manoj

  4. Dear Kamalesh
    I updated firmware and unlocked the modem as per your instruction and the softwares downloded from links you provide. Once again I repeted all the process. But the same problem repeating (not detecting bsnl evdo network). Is there any solutions?
    Regards, Manoj

  5. Dear Kamalesh

  78. Dear Kamlesh ji i am also unlocked my Photon + and i inserted Reliance CDMA sim card but no network dedected and what is the APN for reliance cdma.

    Thanx in advance

    • There is no unlocked firmware available for Huawei EC159 modem available, try CDMA workshop procedure which is mentioned in this article, if your modem is un-customized firmware then it will be unlocked.

  79. will I still be able to use tata network to connect to the internet? will both the cdma and gsm networks be active? if yes then how to switch between them?

    thanks

  80. Hi Kamlesh,

    I have done everything right and infact I have got the msg also “Phone is Unlocked Successfully”
    but I am unable to connect, infact I am getting full Signal while connecting any other SIM but getting an error msg of 691 “Username and/or Password is Incorrect”
    In the Tata Photon Dialer Box, it is not letting me go to Setting option to see/check the username and password and even I have tried to check with all possible permutation/combination like – internet/internet, mynumber/mynumber, etc.
    Pls help & suggest the way forward.
    Thanks in Advance

    • Once signal is coming, means it is unlocked successfully. If setting will be not correct then it will be not able to connect to the internet. You can ask for setting from network provider.

      Put CDMA sim in any CDMA mobile, if network provider sends the setting to your mobile, then you can get the proper setting to use in modem also.

  81. Hello Kamlesh, thanks for the wonderful article. I have few questions
    1)How to change the cdma sim, i didn’t find it. I have reliance net connect (zte – ac2736) and Mblaze ( zte – ac2746)?
    2) It this works on the moderm i have??
    thank you

  84. Hi Kamlesh,

    I want to know,

    1. May I use my EC156 Tata Photon Plus with GSM sim as well or not?
    2. I can pay you $1.30USD for Unlocking but how everything will flow after payment want to know? Means I have to ship dongle to you or You just simply give me an Unlock code or you will remotely do it?

    Hope you get my second question.
