Debranding Vodafone K3565 Rev2

I got an unlock code off Ebay for my Vodafone USB stick but unlocking proved a bit harder than when I had a Three modem. Thought the followiong might be of help to anyone who has an unlock code for their USB stick but can't find a way of entering it!

1. The Vodafone Connect Lite software on the K3565 Rev 2 (a Vodafone branded Huawei E160 modem) will not allow other network SIM cards in it. Windows just won’t recognise the modem. Running Mobile Partner also does not work.
2. You have to remove the Vodafone software by installing Huawei Mobile Partner on it using the firmware update here: http://www.huawei.com/mobileweb/en/file/download.do?f=41470&ctype=1
3. If you want to continue to use Vodafone software you may want to copy it to your PC, or onto an SD memory card in the modem stick for later use.
4. Insert the USB modem with its Vodafone SIM still installed. If you haven’t installed it before, allow the drivers to be installed.
5. Close down the Vodafone Connect Lite application. Run the Huawei software (this works on a Windows XP machine but a Windows 7 machine would not run the software successfully). It will install Mobile partner onto the stick and remove the Vodafone software. This takes a minute or so.
6. Remove the USB modem and put in a different provider’s SIM card
7. Re-insert the USB modem to your PC. If you don’t already have Mobile Partner installed, allow it to install now. Open it and you should be prompted for your unlock code. Enter the code and voila, all done.
8. If you have both Mobile Partner and Vodafone Connect Lite installed on your computer you can connect to Vodafone using either (Vodafone software allows you to check your credit remaining if you have PAYG contract) but if you want to connect to another network you will have to use Mobile Partner as the Voda software will not allow changes to the APN.

It is also possible to unlock Huawei modem without removing Vodafone software.
You only need to download Mobile_Partner_11.030.01.07.03 from this address:
http://www.dc-unlocker.com/downloads/get/VFgle87 and install it on your computer.
After inserting a modem with a new (non-Vodafone) SIM-card, you will be asked for the unlock code.

Did this work for you Chris? I tried it with the same version of Mobile Partner but neither XP or Windows 7 would recognise the modem stick while the Vodafone software was on it. Bit academic for me now as I've removed it from the modem, but it might be helpful for others. Perhaps my mistake was to allow the stick to install its own voda software on my PC in the first place? 4  out of 7 found this valuable. Do you?

Yes, it worked!

May be. Previously, before installing Vodafone software, I was using Huawei E160G modem, so after installing Vodafone Mobile Connect I still could use third partner connection managers with K3565.
