Various users facing problem after unlocking his modems. After unlocking the device data-card does not allow to create the new profile and unable to connect to internet without creating correct profile.

What is solution, If your dongle also does not allow to create the profile?

There are two methods : either change the dashboard with another, that allows to create the profile. Another method is, you can create a Dial-Up connection.

Finding the unlocked dashboard is very difficult, since in market various types of devices are available, and one is not compatible to another one. So, better go for Dial-Up connection. It is easy and there is no need to use third party apps.
