Whelp, Day 3 of trying to figure this all out. Total newbie to using modem modules so go easy. I have two modems:
SIM7000A and SIM800L - Both of which are not getting into a registered status.
Starting with the SIM7000A (The prefered modem) when I can for carriers (COPS=?) I can see both Bell, and Telus. On the SIM800L I can see Rogers. Both modems end up in a Denied state (GREG: 0,3)
I assume the SIM7000A would only report networks that are responding and working with the IoT-M protocols (M1 or NB). There was a thread here that stated all the major carriers (Bell, Rogers and Telus) were supported, but the coverage map only show Rogers (and others not near me). I slapped my Telus data only SIM into this modem and also got a denied state.
The SIM800L while connecting to rogers would still only get a denied state with the hologram SIM.
I’m currently using the FONA library test sketch, so nothing fancy.
The project will be tested in the US, and I see in the forums that I should be OK there - I’d just really like to get the dev work out of the way here before I head down to play.
Any thoughts, suggestions would be welcome. TIA.
