I have ZTE MF920W+ LTE Ufi modem, I had been trying to unlock it but all effort was futile, I tried all forums but haven't met anything similar at all. Without unlocking it, I'm unable to change from 4G, 3G nor Edge but all on automatic. I tried using the unlock code but realized it accepts 16 codes and not 12, a friend tried buying the code for me but none of the codes worked. Please help ASAP.
Hello, I am currently connected to the web using a AT&T ZTE MF923 that I bought brand new from Best Buy. The device was considered GoPhone which is a prepay. I did not ever activate the device with AT&T, I immediately requested the unlock code. The response I got was *we cannot provide you with the unlock code for this device because it has been flagged as fraudulent. I assumed that the reason this happened was that the device came in a box IMEI id printed next to the product barcode on the outside of the package for anyone to see. AT&T does not want people to but these things then unlock them without opening the package and then sell them online as "unlocked device." So I went to unlockbase.com and paid 5 dollars for them to send me a code. I paid right before bed and woke up and plugged the code in before I had to leave for work. Now my ZTE MF923 Hotspot device works on Project Fi with a Data-only Sim I had ordered from project fi.
How to unlock:
You cannot unlock the device it's self using it's touch screen interface. You must do 2 things to get unlocking to work.
1. You must have a working SIM card from another Carrier. You can't activate the SIM on this device AS you try to unlock. Ask a friend to borrow their SIM card. This device uses Micro SIM so I had to have a Nano-SIM to Micro-SIM adapter. As long as the SIM you insert is activated on a completely different carrier from the one the device is locked to (mine was ATT so I put my Project Fi phone-plan SIM into it). Insert your SIM.
2. Once you have inserted your sim you need to connect to a computer with a USB cable. Allow any drivers to install automatically.
3. Open your web browser and visit 192.168.1.1
When you plug in via USB it should kick you offline from whatever other internet you have set up. When you visit this page, this is the device setup page AND the router settings page. Once you access the HotSpot settings page WITH a SIM from a different carrier..... You get promoet to type in your unlock code. Mine unlocked on the first try and now works well!!!!!
