Insert a SIM CARD different from the network that sold you the modem. For example, if you bought your modem from GLO, remove the GLO SIM inside and put in MTN, ZAIN or ETISALAT.
Plug the USB Modem into your computer and open the dashboard from where you connect to the internet.
After a few seconds/minute, a small window will pop up requesting for the unlock code.
Type in the unlock code correctly and click enter.
If the unlocking was successfully, the small window will automatically disappear meaning that your usb internet modem has been successfully unlocked . As shown below, give the dashboard a few seconds and @ the bottom left corner, it will start showing the name of the network whose SIM is within the modem.
