I have both, but the one which is locked is the E3372h.

Check Settings in modems control page?
Do you have program to connect to internet, like media partner, or web page in browser like routers?

When I insert my O2 SIM the following web page pops up:

http://o2.dongle/html/mobileconnection.html

from which I can select

system -> device information

This shows:-

Device name: E3372
IMEI: 861821034981503
IMSI : 234109173974832
My number: Unknown

Web page means hilink soft.
Install fc serial drivers (for instance from my mediafire link below) and try to detect modem in dc unlocker program (press magnifying glass button in it).
When modem will be detected, type at the bottom: AT^SFM=1
If answer OK, then: AT^NVWREX=8268,0,12,1,0,0,0,2,0,0,0,A,0,0,0
if OK then AT^SFM=0 and restart.
It's the easiest and universal unlocking method.

Many thanks for the help. I tried following your instructions. This is what I got. Unfortunately no 'OK' response to AT cmnd

AT^NVWREX=8268,0,12,1,0,0,0,2,0,0,0,A,0,0,0

Do I need to login first?

There is no login at serial port.
As you can see - sim lock status is: unlocked. So maybe this command wasn't necessary.
Anyway type at^sfm=0 and restart device. Then try to put other sim card.

Something happened when I ran the previous command and now the modem isn't recognised

===================================================================

DC - Unlocker 2 Client 1.00.1403

Detecting modem :

selection :
manufacturer - Huawei modems
model - Auto detect (recommended)

modem not found !

===================================================================



Under Control Panel -> Device Manager there are three devices named HUAWEI_MOBILE under Other Devices and they don't have device drivers.

Previously when inserting the modem with the O2 sim a web page popped up - http://o2.dongle/html/mobileconnection.html but this no longer happens. However I do get a blinking blue light from the modem when it has the O2 sim installed, but i don't see that when the Vectra sim is present, there is only a blinking green light. At the moment I can't access the modem. Should I uninstall the FC serial driver?

Your modem is still in factory mode (at^sfm=1). Can you see modems drive letter in windows? If so use this script http://www.mediafire.com/file/jexg56a7n ... y.zip/file
Also removing battery for few minutes may help.

No, there is no drive letter which appears when I insert the modem. I did remove the battery for a few minutes but it made no difference.

When I insert the modem, a Windows error msg pops up saying the device is ready for use but drivers are missing and that I should install them.

Should I insert a micro SDHC card in the modem and install the program you mentioned on it?

I have another Huawei E3372 modem - a MegaFon M150-2. This one does come with a virtual CD drive. Can I turn this into a Hilink modem?
