  18. Yogesh Verma

    Hey You can’t use cdma sim card in gsm data card because both working process are different and also gsm data card have 15 digit IMEI no. but cdma card have s/n.
    so if you want to use cdma card then buy another data card like tata photon’s(huawei ec121).

  19. Yogesh Verma

    which sim card you are using for different provider settings are different so check your network profile .
