I have successfully de-provisioned MTS MTAG Huawei C8511 from its locked carrier MTS. Reliance RUIM was working with voice and sms by default. I did not require a pc or any such equipments. Now 1x/Evdo works beautifully. I tried much hard to de-compile and rebuild framework-res.apk to remove carrier files but firmware crashed and had to re-install firmware and re-root a hundred times. However carrier name could not be changed by erl.xml. In stock firmware, non-MTS APNs could not be saved, now I have made Reliance as default. Anyone interested in modifying MTS phones can contact me for free support.

Dr. faramroze, my friend bought a MTag 3.1 /Huawei C8511 - and it lies with me, as he asked to me to save internet settings for reliance/tata. Can you help me?

Also like to know do you know how to unlock other MTags - 352 and 351, 401, 353 ? I find that no one is unlocking them, probably coz they are not Huawei ones, but ZTE, Alcatel, Coolpad ones.

Known issues:

* On drop down menu - MTS name is not changing (as you also said it)

If you flash Huawei 8500S (originally made for China Telecom) ROM, it will remove Mts carrier label but you cannot input Reliance or Tata name.

I will re-write Reliance settings here tomorrow.

carrier name is not a big deal for me. I guess it does not matter to most people.

But big problem is I can not save the internet settings. APN got deleted when I try to change MNC-MCC from 405-89 to something other.

Search for my tutorial on RIMweb for MTS MTAG. Follow it properly and you are good to go.

changing mcc & mnc is not required.. create new and edit following items only as per operator.

Name : Operator Name

APN : #777

Username : as per operator

Password : as per operator

Save and Restart the phone.

Contact Reliance backend or our forum's Gurus for placing a request for evdo activation: http://www.rimweb.in/forums/topic/32930-the-all-in-one-faq-using-foreign-imported-cdma-handsets-with-cdma-networks-in-india/

@ Alok

do you have EVDO activated.. triggered from tappa-talk 2...

I am going to buy a Huawei c8511 Mtag 281 unlocked handset for EVDO net Usage only (BSNL EVDO Precisely). Alok bhai can u please tell

1st questtion: if APN Settings can be made easily in this unlocked handset.

2nd question: The sole purpose of this set is to be used as Mifi. (Wifi Hotspot Tethering). Will i get sufficient speed through this setup. I am already getting 2.5Mbps speed via unlocked 2766 modem.

^ Answers to your questions :

1st > Yes, you can easily put APNs on Unlocked MTS MTag.

2nd > Yes, you can use it as a MiFi. Never checked BSNL CDMA as it has a very poor coverage at my place, but yes, used Reliance, TATA DoCoMo & MTS on it.. it worked perfect.

Do not wish to disappoint you by saying this, If your sole purpose of this device is to be used as MiFi & kept it ON & on WiFi Tethering mode for say 8-10 Hrs. continuously, you'll end up with a BAD battery within 2 months. (keeping the device on charger for that long period & WiFi Tethering ON concurrently heats up handset like hell..). You need to check it randomly. I used to use MTS MTag 3.1 as MiFi only on the go.

don't know much about others bro, as c8511 aka mtag301 is a huawei device & build is much better then others like coolpad, zte, etc. also, devices other than 301 were not available in my circle at that time..<br /><br />triggered from razr...<br /><br />
