In New Zealand we have a government sponsored 4G LTE rollout for rural areas that are not covered by fibre or ADSL.
The problem is the modem provided is all that will work with the provided sim card and it is very basic and locked down.
To avoid people popping the sim cards in their phones and running around with 300 or so GB they TAG lock the sim cards to only work with Huawei branded devices where the TAG of the device matched that of the value stored in the sim card.
Is there a way to spoof the TAG code or bypass this check so I may use an omnia in place of my huawei device or something other method that will allow me to use a better router and firewall solution for my home?
I’m not trying to do any thing illegal i just want to use a modem to suit my needs.
I know there is tools to alter IMEI detaols but this would be deemed illegal in some countries, it is not mandated as illegal in new Zealand but I would like to avoid such a method.
