I have provided already so many unlocking solutions for various modems e.g. Huawei, ZTE, Micromax, Alcatel, Doro, MTN, Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone, Idea, Reliance, Tata Docomo etc. Its again time for ZTE MF190 Idea modem. Idea Cellular recently launched ZTE MF190 in India of 7.2Mbps HSPA Qualcomm MSM6290 chipset based Mobile Broadband Device which firmware is BD_IDEAMF190V1.0.0B01 and compilation date is Aug 29 2011 19:56:42.
The best part of the ZTE Idea NetSetter ZTE MF190 is it comes with unlocked firmware and protected by the dashboard only. Hence, one can use any sim by changing the software or dashboard. There is no need to flash the modem for use any another network provider sim. You can use any another network provider sim with the help of ZTE Join Air software or 3 Connect tool. Still users who want the original dashboard of ZTE Idea NetSetter MF190 can download from the link which is provided at the end of the article.
