How do I activate a SIM Card?

M2M One SIM cards activate automatically! – we like to keep things simple.

Unless specifically requested our M2M SIM cards are delivered in a “Test Ready” state. This allows a SIM to establish a data connection.

Once your device establishes a connection, the SIM is allowed to conduct up to 20KB of “Test Data” free of charge. Once your device has passed the 20KB limit it’s state will automatically move to “Activated”.

Note: During the time a SIM is in the “Test Ready” state, it is not billable.
