Hey 3burns2 - I don't think those modems should be locked to our Network, there may be some settings you'd need to change if using another providers SIM but I don't believe they are locked to our Network.

Is the HUAWEI E5251 locked to the Optus network?

Thx for the quick reply and link @AlexRH. It will cost $25 to unlock my Huawei E5251 WiFi modem. As I only purchased it for $19 (on sale) and it’s only 3G capable this seems a bit steep for me - I was crossing my fingers that it would be free ;P but alas, no.

Ahh yes, If you haven't recharged over a total of $80 over the life of the service then you will be charged $25 to unlock the device. Let us know if you need a hand with anything else. Casey
