Steps on How To Set Up Your Huawei B818 or B628 Modem

  1. The Huawei B818 uses a Micro SIM card, while the B628 uses a Nano SIM card. In both cases, it should come pre-inserted. When troubleshooting, make sure to have the modem turned off when inserting/removing the SIM card, as this may affect performance or damage the SIM card.

To insert the SIM card, open the SIM card cover and insert the SIM card gently inside the SIM card slot as shown on the image above until it clicks. To remove the SIM card, just simply press the SIM card until it clicks and it will pop up.

2. Plug the modem into a power source and power on your Huawei B818 or B628 modem (it may take a couple of minutes to complete the boot up sequence).
