Hi, have received a new virgin sim card, thought it was for my mobile but it's the wrong number and found it's for my mobile broadband, it has asked for an unlock code which is 9 numbers long, the unlock code in the letter is 15 numbers and don't work, have tried the unblock key on the sim card that don't work either. Huawei Mobile Connect.
This sim is for mobile broadband with a usb dongle, NOT a Mobile Phone, and asks for a code which is 8 digits, the code on the letter is 15 digits, i tried the sim my old Iphone 6 and it worked with no code, but now both sim do not work in either the usb stick or wifi unit, this is for a virgin Supplied Huawei mobile connect model E160 HSDPA USB STICK which is 3G mobile Data only, i also use a 3rd party Huawei mobile WIFI unit E531Ws-1, I never had any trouble with Either till now and it not asking for a code cause it not Recognised in the usb stick and in the wifi unit says it has a signal but can't connect.
Thanks for popping back @dchgv1 - we understand that this is for mobile broadband; I have not asked about a mobile phone in my reply but I apologise about any confusion my questions may have caused you.
Can you advise what device is asking for this code and at what point does it ask?
The USB Stick was Supplied by Virgin Media Mobile in 2012, I did Not Request a New Sim I Had an Email Saying If I Did Not Change the Sim I would Lose The Service, You did not Supply the WIFI Hub I have Tried Resetting the Hub, There is no Where on the Stick or Software To Reset,
Here's my acc no. [REMOVED] Mobile No. [REMOVED] , Copy of Email Below.
Hi David, We will shortly be sending you a new SIM card in the post, it is important that you swap this within 30 days to keep your service up and running. We understand that your service is provisioned as a Mobile Broadband tariff, this means that your dongle (or similar device) will shortly not be able to connect to the internet should you not swap your SIM to the one we will send you.
You will receive your new SIM shortly, along with step-by-step instructions. Please follow the instructions carefully to ensure you perform the swap successfully, don’t worry your current plan will not change.

Good Morning, I have tried the mobile usb stick in my laptop and does not work it says device is not present but it is because it has loaded the software from the stick (virgin mobile home) this worked fine with the old sim but now neither sim works, i have tried the new sim in my 3rd party mobile wifi hub and when i log into the the mobile hub it shows virgin mobile roaming with a good 3g signal but says it cannot connect try connecting manually, so i press manual connect and it says your profile in invalid, looking on the web says your provider should supply this, it asks for ( Profile Name, APN and Password). This Sim is going in the Bin if not Sorted very soon.
