  1. Hi,
    I have a 5573-508 that is from a carrier in Colombia (Claro) and everytime i use this procedure, i get the same combination of user and password (Claro/Claro) so i guess this is embedded in the firmware. Is there any other way to change this, tha its not flashing the firmware?

  8. I have tried to reset my E5573C login password by pressing reset button but after pressing rest button device should be restart but it doesn’t. Can any one tell me how to reset login password of huewai E5573C method other than reset button.

  9. I have no problem to reset the device and it is working fine but the app Huawei HiLink is asking for a password. The password is the same as the web login password but no matter what password I use. … Password failed … Please try again
    What also weird is I can’t give a login name. It only asks for a password
    I do see on top of the screen in the Huawei HiLink app E5573cs-322

  10. I read more complaints about people who can not login with the web password.in the Huawei HiLink app Android and iOS
    So I believe this is a bug in the unlock software
