Thanks for using Argos Q&A."

There might be a way of unlocking it?

Yes you definitely can, I paid 99p to unlock mine.
Never had one of these type of things. Can it be used abroad?

​yes after unlock it will work with any network worldwide
Note sim only runs for 90 days max from activation. Nice bit of kit use mine all the time, just 3G bit more than fast enough to surf with.

Also to note, this is great for non cellular tablets.
I bought one of these from Argos to use on my holiday to South Devon; worked perfectly for our family's laptops and tablets. I paid £24.99, so its a fiver cheaper now. Recommended !!!!!
Anyone know if the sim is 4G (thus worth £15 on it's own)?

For example ?? Unlocking EE locked devices is notoriously known to be very expensive ...
is there any eBay unlocking services for this ??

Fantastic price - heat.

eBay 99p to unlock this MiFi.
I've got one of these, unlocked and using a Three sim, but with the Vodafone firmware installed on it. Does anyone know if there is any 'OEM' unbranded firmware available as I've not been able to find it, if so? Simply unlocking it, isn't enough to change the firmware.
Great device, lasts about 6-8hrs on battery. Use it with 3 data sim for work abroad and use it in the head unit of my camper to access Spotify/YouTube/live navigation etc will be picked up as a hard wired modem and works slightly faster if plugged in I found. Forums online will unlock for free if you give them imei and your email. I found withall the unlocking tools you either have to pay for tokens or the software has malware/virus so be careful on download

if in above procedure UK EE E589 4G WiFi / MiFi mobile router prompts for
password, then provide the 8 digit unlock code and your UK EE E589 4G WiFi / MiFi
mobile router is unlocked for ever
.

Nothing new. You will need an unlock code from EE. Ask EE it will cost you a fortune ...

​Yes just the sim back in.
Just picked up one, signal strength is really good, the sim is a 4GEE WIFI pay as you go multi sim, with 6GB data that can be activated now or later.

I would be surprised if this data worked outside the UK anyone confirm?
You could unlock and then add a sim 3 that you can use in many countries

"a sim 3" as in THREE, could it be a pay as you go? as i only need it for 2 weeks?

Yes sorry - I meant a THREE sim - ensure it is on the home and away plan and that your country is listed....when I last used it and it may have changed it was as easy as that and yes SPAIN was included - you cant use a PAYG 123 sim on these mifis though as far as I know

In the past I've used a code off eBay for 99p to unlock my EE Mifi Osprey. Quick and easy, I imagine there will be sellers for this model too.

So theoretically, could i just take this device as is to spain and use it?
Sorry if this is an incredibly silly question but once unlocked could I pop in a 4g data sim? New to the whole mifi thing

Tempted to get this deal

There was a 4G Android phone (EE Rook) on here for £20 recently. I use that as my MiFi access point. Works well, plus isn't just a dongle.
This is good considering you get 6GB but 4g is so much better
EE 3G is absolute crap......EE 4G is fantastic! Speaking from experience.
I Google it. Huawei and model number free unlock. it was very easy and these mifi are used by more than ee.
