I just activated my sim card and my dashboard says it is live.
i downloaded the: https://github.com/botletics/SIM7000-LTE-Shield/wiki/Library-Functions
and because I am on a Mac, I copied the Code directory to /Users/$myusername/Documents/Arduino/sim7000g
I opened the arduno IDE, and under: file > examples > adafruit FONA library
I selected the the example and uploaded it and ran it successfully and i get to the point where I can enter commands into the serial monitor.
when i type n, i get
<— +CGREG: 0,2
Network status 2: Not registered (searching)
when i type i i get
<— +CSQ: 99,99
RSSI = 99: -115 dBm
and when i type G i get
<— SHUT OK
Failed to turn on
and when i type g I get
Failed to turn off
so naturally when i type w and enter in
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of why?
I have my sim700g stacked on a sparkfun redboard. the red board has power and the sim700g has power (the done button is green and the pwr is green and the net is flashing blue)
