  1. Hi,
    I tried to unlock and set the APN settings as per the guidelines you have provided.
    However I don’t see the APN settings under Network Settings. Also the logo pn the eb page is of Tata Photon and not Tata Docomo as in your case.

    I remember seeing the APN setting once, then something happened perhaps the firmware upgrade which then change the logo to Tata Photon and after that the APN setting link went missing.

    Can you please help here.

    Thanks,
    Nasir

  2. to unlock through dc-unlocker you must have 7 credits which costs you nearly Rs.600/-. Once it is unlocked, you can use any gsm sim. But it won’t unlock the CDMA part.

  3. @Digital Gallery India, yes I have dc tool, the above mentioned errors are from the error in GUI of dc tool. In think the problem may be with the usb driver for zte ac30 that I downloaded from the place as mentioned in this website is not working for me, is there any other place where the driver can be downloaded.
    So I am trying to understand the procedure.

    1. Install the usb driver for zte ac30.
    2. Install the dc tool.
    3. Launch the dc tool client.
    4. choose zte and manually choose ac40 as modem.
    5. manually choose the com ports by looking at the device manager.
    6. Click on the search button in the gui. ( that is where I get the error, cannot find the modem unknown error 118).

    I want to mention the zte device is connected to the usb port of the computer and it is on.

  4. After installed the usb driver software mentioned in this site the http://ufi.home/login.asp does not open for me. I am a little confused.

    What are the steps to unlock wifi router:
    1. Install the usb driver software for gte ac30.
    2. Install the dc unlocker. Do you need credits to unlock , meaning you have to pay in paypal ?
    3. Open the dc unlock select gte and then ac 30, select the correct com port from device manager.
    4. Click on search button.
    I get this error.
