I have an Aircard 320U which was connected to Bigpond 4G, but I cancelled the service earlier on this year (foolish of me). I wish now to reconnect, but have been told NO, you have to have a new device, pay much more and much higher charges, etc. I don't want to throw away what is a great device, it worked like a charm. Now other operators will connect me for a modest amount. I spoke with the local bigpond store, who may only be a franchise, but they certainly did not impress me at all. I apparently require an unlocking "MEP" code to unlock the aircard, their whole advice was hurried and certainly not clear. Bigpond wants $50-00 for the MEP code.
Any suggestions please. Should I persist with Bigpond, try again for an unlocking code and go to another carrier, or simply have a Forex and forget anything about Telco service?

T U for your message. I will try yet once again, but from the hassels I have had with this device bought from Telstra/bigpond, I am really thinking of moving all my gear across to Optus. The only thing that has held me back is that Optus maybe just as bad. T U again
