Huawei B683 Wi-Fi routers are very famous around the world, and it can be unlocked using the correct unlock code. I have unlocked various devices of B683, but after the unlock, some users are not able to configure the profile with APN settings, as its grayed (not highlighted or blocked by the network provider).
