I also have a question but about wifi mobile router. I'm looking for one to take with me for travel to Taiwan and Japan later in the year. I have also noticed there are "modified" or "unlocked"router. A seller said i have to make sure that my sim-plan allows to use on non-modified modem and can do hotspot.
What is the meaning of "non-modified" modem?
I have asked the seller to explain but he's not answering
Basically a non modified modem is a legit modem from a well known brand that works as expected, allows you to use a sim card to get online
now, telcos here that offer unlimited plans usually block those sim cards from being used in modems because the usage when shared is going to be much higher than you using it in youir phone
modified ones trick your sim/teclo into thinking its being used on your phone so that the unlimited plan can be shared
with that said they do have methods to detect it and high data usage will probaby raise suspicions
for your use case of roaming... some roaming providers will give you a modem and you give it back to them at the end
could consider that instead of buying your ownThis post has been edited by PRSXFENG: Mar 1 2023, 09:12 PM
