Great Phones We Unlock: Vodafone R216 Mobile Wifi Hotspot Router

OK, as you probably noticed, this is not actually a phone, but a portable WiFi router, but it doesn’t make any difference, UnlockBase can still unlock it. New from leading service provider Vodafone, the R216 Mobile WiFi Hotspot Router is a Huawei made device. It’s a 4G Mobile WiFi hotspot router equipped with the Hisilicon Balong 711 processor.

If you visit a Vodafone store and complain of patchy, inconsistent broadband reception at home, or you are visiting the country and need reliable internet access on the go, Vodafone will most likely recommend this product to you. Mobile Wi-Fi provides the most convenient and adaptable way to connect your Wi-Fi enabled devices to the Mobile Broadband network, creating a personal, protected Wi-Fi zone quickly, simply and easily. Ready to use straight from the box, there’s no software to install to get it started, you just switch it on and it’s ready to get you online.

With this device you can connect up to five devices at once, making it easy for you and your family or friends to be online at the same time whether you’re using laptops, tablets, games consoles or other Wi-Fi devices such as cameras. And because the R216 is 4G you can use it instead of home broadband.

The R216 supports Cat.4 4G LTE with download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50 Mbps. The R216 features LTE FDD 800/1800/2600MHz, UMTS/WCDMA 900/2100MHz and GPRS/GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz bands. In its DC-HSPA+ network, the device supports download speed to up to 42Mbps and upload speed up to 5.76Mbps.

The Vodafone R216 supports WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and also dual band WiFi 2.4 + 5 GHz. It comes with an LED indicator and an 1500mAh Li-ion battery. Designed to fit easily in your pocket, it measures 96 × 58 × 12.8 mm and weighs only 95 gms. It comes in a choice of black or white.

You can use the R216 Mobile Wifi Hotspot Router to share your secure mobile broadband internet connection with other Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as computers, Apple® iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, Android smartphones and tablets like the Samsung® Galaxy Tab, or mobile gaming devices such as Nintendo® DSi.

There is also flexibility in how you power the device, choose from battery, mains or USB to keep the Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi working throughout the day. And because it can go wireless after being fully charged, it makes it easier to position your Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi so as to achieve the best mobile coverage. Apple iPhone/iPad and Google Android tablet/smartphone users can download the Mobile Wi-Fi monitoring app from the respective app stores.

Great Phones We Unlock: Vodafone Smart Ultra 6

This is an occasional series that reviews some exceptional cellphones that represent either the latest in cutting edge features, or all round great value for money. Available in the UK, the 4G Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 falls into the latter category. In fact, it offers specs that might cost you £300 or more in a Samsung handset, but costs £125. That’s without a contract, with no obligation beyond the phone being locked to Vodafone – but more about that later.

Designed by Vodafone and manufactured by telecoms giant ZTE, one of the top five largest smartphone manufacturers in its home market,and in the top ten, worldwide. The cellphone features a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, 3000mAh battery, Snapdragon 615 processor and a 13MP rear-facing camera, the device has formidable specifications. At 5.5” it’s a big phone and it’s quite simply the highest-spec budget phone you can get without importing something cheap and dubious from China.

With the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 you have a well-known name, with a phone made by a cellphone world leader.

Some of the major players such as Samsung, LG and HTC do offer handsets in the same price range but these are usually with significantly lower specs than the Smart Ultra 6. Alternatively carriers often offer better specs but then add large amounts of bloatware resulting in a poorer experience. Vodafone has avoided this and as a result, delivers the Android experience as Google designed it to be enjoyed.

The Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 has very little bloatware, and a generous 16GB. The internal storage is 16GB of which around 10 GB is available to use, plus there’s a microSD card slot so you can expand the storage up to 64GB.

Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 Unlock

Sprightly performance includes speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps when connected to a compatible network. The handset remains lost locked to LTE well and has a strong antenna. The handset offers rich sound while on a call or listening to music.

The handset sports a 13MP rear camera and uses the stock camera app to deliver an easy-to-use feature-rich interface. With a simple swipe next to the shutter button, you can switch between Manual, Auto and the various modes, which include the useful Filters, Multi-Exposure and HDR modes.

The overall look of the phone isn’t really going to scoop any design awards, with no really distinguishing style features that you would find on the likes of a Samsung Edge, an Apple iPhone 6 + or just about any top spec Blackberry, but then it is literally two thirds less expensive than these premium priced cellphones.

Unlock your Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 with UnlockBase

When you buy the cell phone it comes locked to – no prizes for guessing – Vodafone, and this can be a disadvantage. Vodafone’s service can leave a lot to be desired, you nearly always have to pay to speak to a customer service advisor, even if the problem is Voadafone’s, and their Pay As You Go rates are somewhat uninspiring, starting at £10 a month for 300 minutes of calls (Giff Gaff offers 250 minutes for just £7.50) unlimited texts and 250 MB of data. Fortunately UnlockBase, the web’s largest remote cellphone unlock website can quickly and efficiently unlock the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, and with our Price Match Promise we will unlock it for less than the £20 charged by Vodafone for the same service.

We also supply Vodafone unlock codes for 115 Vodafone cell phone models. Since launching this phone unlocking service, over 2,051 customers have already received Vodafone unlock codes. It doesn’t matter if it’s an old Vodafone, or, like the Smart Ultra 6, one of the latest releases, with UnlockBase you will find a solution to successfully unlock your Vodafone, fast. Unlock it here
