    I have successfully unlocked my Photon plus, now its working with other cdma sim cards.

    Is it possible to convert this modem to use GSM sim cards?

      • sir, luckily it did not ask for any code… But it installed a firmware version 11.106.00.06.000 instead of 11.104.04.00.000… Is it fine this way??? but the dialer did not install… Luckily the photon plus number still works… Will keep you updated after I attempt the same at another computer…

      • pls ignore the last msg, sir, I had successfully unlocked the first try… it’s just that the modem works with BSNL CDMA SIM (which I possess) in CDMA-1x mode only… And the dialler installation problem was solved with physically disconnecting and reconnecting the Modem….
        But sir, I have an earnest request…
        I have adequate BSNL EVDO coverage (luckily) in my location and I use Win 8/8.1 based PC’s… So, PLEASE advise me about the EVDO rev A/B modems that DEFINITELY support and are fully functional with BSNL EVDO, when unlocked…. Please help!

  46. Hi Kamlesh,

    I’m facing a weird error with my dongle, I’ve unlocked the dongle with the DC unlocked client (using credits). When I click on detect modem button, it shows R-UIM as unlocked.

    But when I try to use my bsnl evdo’s cdma SIM it simply shows “R-UIM not detected or invalid”.

    I’ve tried flashing the firmware you’ve mentioned which is as same as the one provided by DC Unlocker.

    So I was wondering if you could help me out resolving this issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards
    Dhairya
