    Default Use of Airtel SIM card on Vodafone USB stick

    I am using a Vodafone USB stick for my wireless internet connection but have not been happy with Vodafone's billing & customer service. My question is -- can I get an Airtel sim card and use it inside the usb stick that I have already purchased from Vodafone? Or is there any sort of lock in place that would prevent that? When I open the Vodafone software, it shows the Airtel network as one of the available networks, but obviously, without an airtel sim, I cannot test it out.

    What's the harm in experimenting?

    Go ahead and just try whether it works or not!

    I fully agree -- no harm in experimenting, but wouldn't I first have to purchase a data plan from Airtel? What would be the minimum cost involved. I already have a SIM card for an Airtel prepaid mobile connection, could I add on data services to that at a nominal cost -- if so, I might be willing to try it out.

    Just activate the zero rental plan & then test by opening any small website (bcoz Rs.20/mb approx on this plan). If it works switch to a good plan & do inform us about it

    Talking Vodafone 3.6mbps data card 3570Z is not locked at all!

    Guys ! I have used Voda 3570z with all 3G sims other than Vodafone!!
    It is not locked at all. If you are using Win 7 it is very simple&no problem at all.
    If you are using Win XP a bit more complex. Read all the old threads.
    when voda software launches ,just reduce it.
    Just down load MDMA and launch it. fill up the APN and give *99# as the dialing no.you are done.
    In win 7 on the right hand side you will get a notification -networks available,right click-say connect-properties-fill up the APN and say connect automatically in roaming also. next time it will connect with out you doing anything.

    So unlocked it and now I am condused what settings are to be changed in order to use it with vodafone sim card.

    Wink

    Vodafone 3570z is a unlocked data card.
    So you can use any sim.
    If you are using Win 7 ,you click the networks symbol at the right bottom and set the APN of your new 2G/3G provider.it will connect.

    I still use Voda (Zte)3570z 3.6 mbps data card via MDMA software and Huawei 1750c.7.2 mbps card directly.
    Google "MDMA " ,download and instal and keep it in the desktop. when you launch it,it will detect data card and you canfill in APN and choose Edge/3G networks too. You need to create a Dialer *99# .That's all.
