Telstra SIM with Hologram Nova

Hi,

Recently I have purchased a few Hologram Novas to fill a void for mobile data connectivity to cloud services.
After following Holograms simple instructions, I am unable to establish a 3g IP or even make a connection.

pi@sess:~ $ sudo hologram modem location

I’m currently using a Telstra Mobile SIM which works on other modems.

Any help establishing a connection would be great.

You have to set the APN, which our SDK tries to do for you but since you are using a different SIM it is failing. You will have to make changes to the SDK to support your APN if you want to use a different SIM card but still use the SDK.
