  • I had never seen a girl in IT :P specially in pakistan anyway’s nice post but who use huawei now days and put some profil etc couze i really want to see whats with you :D

  • please upload your screen shot that you are using huawie wireless on vista ,bye the modem has been installed successfully.
    thanks for teaching us.

  • This doesn’t show Tusb3410 when data cable is attached in Usb… It shows something else…. Hence no new port is created in Windows Vista

  • Software/drivers can easily be installed by CD provided by VPTCL but its not gonna work with Vista. I have installed it more than twice, modem and everything seems fine (in device manager) but when i click on connect or if i manually create a new connection for VPTCL its useless :( if anybody has success story please share the procedure.

  • hello
    i am having problem while i reached on the page where to select port
    1-Select All ports is disable and in selected port there are no ports ooption to select
    can anybody help me regarding this

  • Hi everyone!
    i tried the steps but it does’nt install the software. it says “windows was unable to install TUSB3410 boot device” anybody could help me out of this plz

    • I have the same problem. Since this post was a couple of months ago, did you solve the problem?

      would like to know how!!


  • Madam! I neither have Vfone nor tried it ….. but I wanna mention the very basic thing you forgot here and that is this forced unverified driver installation is only possible in Vista/Win7 x86 (32 bit) editions.
    Vista/Win7 x64 (64 bit) won’t let you install any unverified drivers at all. So your instructions are totally become false there.

    So please, from now on if you ever post anything, go with first getting full information …. though I must appreciate that you as a girl took step to post something valuable to users (specific users).

    ! AoA !
    just listen all.

    VPTCL drivers only work in Windows 98 and Xp.
    so don’t waste time. i check and surf internet for two month and come to conclusion that V-PTCL driver is not compatable with Vista and 7.
