Today, I have unlocked Huawei E303h-1 data card which was locked to Mascom of Botswana.

It is basically E303h-1GA which is sub-model of Huawei E303 and comes with firmware version 21.318.25.00.273, that is un-customized. Since it comes with un-customized firmware, so unlocking is easy. But, here Huawei has done one important change in the modem. Now, E303h-1 can be unlocked with Auth V3 and new Algo code does not work.

How to Unlock Huawei E303h-1, Locked to Mascom Botswana ?

Insert any another network SIM than Mascom Botswana and plug to PC with USB cable. Let the modem launch its default software/dashboard / mobile partner. Now, it will ask you unlock code. Put the correct 8 digit NCK code/password / unlock code and clickOK. Now, your modem is unlocked forever.

By any reason, you are not able to unlock your Huawei E303h-1 of Mascom Botswana, then you can use Huawei modem code writer tool or Card Lock unlock tool to send the NCK in the modem.
