    Angry Huawei Data card- BSNL EVDO

    Hi ,

    Two days back i bought Huawei E3131. My plan was to get into BSNL Evdo club. After a long frustration in BSNL office, i somehow managed to get a BSNL CDMA Sim (Yes, I dont see anywhere that it is EVDO). I asked the BSNL staff to give me a call when the sim is active. She did that. But, still my data card shows the sim is invalid(attached the snapshot for the same). How can i check if it is active or not ??

    Please help me. I also dont know how to proceed with my recharge. I read more threads. But, all are confusing asking us to recharge/top-up. Please be clear.

    With Smiles,
    Siva Balan V

    You are trying to use a CDMA sim card in a GSM datacard. I believe it is a GSM datacard. I am not 100% sure. Ask the manufacturer or read the box it came in. If it does support CDMA sim cards then it might be locked to your previous service provider.

    Thanks for your reply. Can you please tell me what are the other data cards that i can use with EVDO. I dont want to use the ZTE models that BSNL gives. That looks too old than the product available currently.

    Thanks for your reply. I am happy now.. But, dont we have any other option that mmx 310C ? Sorry for this question. Because, it is just 3.1Mbps. Which one is good ? mmx 310C Or the model that bsnl gives(i dont know the model that they give. please tell me if you know.)

    Thanks for your information. I am now ordering a MMX 310C in flipkart now. Will it be hard to configure?? Please tell me how to configure..

    I know only my CDMA subscriber number(9187152761). Is there any way to test it is activated or not ?? Any portal that i can login to see my information ??

    A reply would be a great help for me.

    THanks for your reply. I live in Bangalore. I took the SIM from BDA complex,koramangala. The problem is that my last 10 digits in my SIM is 9180652761. But, she called me and told me that my SIM is 9187152761. Which one should i use to get it configured in MMX ?

    Thanks guys. I am in to the EVDO club now. I am happy now. I will post my download speed soon. Would be a great help if you can tell me how to do :

    1. Find my balance and validity. [I got the balance by dialing *123#. As i reached my account with 20INR, It is showing the validity for 6months. ]
    2. How to recharge my card with Unlimited plan(1 Month) ?

    Please help me to recharge for UL plan. I am confused with either 825/750 ? Top-up/Recharge ? And where should i do that ?

    I used the portal http://117.254.199.10/balance.php. But, Karnataka is not listed in that. Please help.!

    Thanks Jebas, for your reply. No Fluctuation in the signal. No disconnection. But, i am highly disappointed today. It downloaded only 600MB in 4hr(~42KBPS).
    Are you guys doing anything else to get the speed ? I read in forum that many people are getting 200-300KBPS. Is that true ?

    speed depends upon signal strength and number of evdo users in your area. call 1502 from bsnl mobile or land line and book complaint.
