Vodafone K3565 Ubuntu error

I tried to get a Vodafone K3565, which is Huawei hardware. I got the
below errors while trying to make it work with Ubuntu 11.10:

But
no matter how much I tried I could not get it running. After a while I
found out that this dongle is SIMlocked and I wanted to use it with a
non Vodafone SIM. To unlock it you need to install minicom (apt-get
install minicom) and configure it to use ttyUSB2 by running it “minicom
-s”. Then you can run minicom and type in AT^CARDLOCK? after which you
should get something like ^CARDLOCK: 2,10,0 now all you need to do is
type in the IMEI from your stick (printed on it) into this homepage
and save the code you get there. With this code you can then run
minicom again and do AT^CARDLOCK=”YOURCODEHERE” replacing the text with
your actual unlock code. You should get an OK from minicom. After that
the Vodafone dongle should work perfectly.
