How to Unlock Etisalat zte MF190A modem

I got myself an Etisalat modem (zte MF190A) today after I lost my Airtel Modem, but along the line I decided to use another network SIM card on it but it wouldn’t work. Guess what? It was asking for 16 digit unlocking code which means the modem was LOCKED and only to be used with the default SIM.  For a moment I brainstormed and came out with what I call the easiest way to unlock zte M190A modem.

I thought it would make sense for me to share with you specific guide on how to unlock etisalat zte mf190A modem (and use another SIM card like MTN, Airtel or Glo to browse) in case you come across such situation.
