  16. Kamlesh,

    I have Huawei E5172Bs-925 (IMEI: 357500043083532) router and it is hooked on AIRTEL, Maharashtra, India.

    I tried a VODAFONE card inside, but it does not show me the device asking code, it just shows SIM LOCK in red and there is no section to enter any code inside.

    Is there a firmware I can use to get to this unlock option?

    Thanks

  42. Guys, i am on Airtel, india, i purchased and updated the firmware according to the site below.

    https://routerunlock.com/unlock-airtel-huawei-e5172bs-925-4g-lte-router-gateway/

    No matter what i do, it just doesnt work i tried resetting the router twice, tried two vodafone 3g simcards and 1 reliance 3g simcard, the moment i insert the sim and start working on the router login page, before i could enter any details it just reboots continuously. Is anyone facing such issue or any suggestion on how to go ahead with this?

    Cheers,
    Anand

  43. hey, anand joshi .. so far it has only worked with my jio SIM. i have tried the device with tatadocomo AND bsnl and the device starting rebooting after few seconds and keep on rebooting..so i guess it doesnt support 3g network
    also i tried my vodafone 4g sim …although this time it didn’t rebooted like in case of docomo and bsnl but i didnt get any signal bars (range) for the vodafone sim

    so far only jio works for me.. whats the update from your side?
