Over the last month, we’ve been working with Digi, Telit and Hologram to understand how to get M2 onto a no-cost cellular network using Hologram’s Developer Program. A VERY long story short - due to a technical limitation, the Telit LE866 modem found at the heart of the Digi 4G XBee module is not compatible with the Hologram SIM. A firmware upgrade for the LE866 is in the works, but an ETA is not available at this time.
Fortunately, there is a very straight-forward solution. That solution is to use a Verizon-branded SIM card - just like the Digi Developer kit. Unfortunately, unlike the awesome Hologram Developer Program, service on these SIMs is not free.
We are happy to get you one of these SIM cards if you don’t already have one. We’ll organize a list of possible providers on the forum, along with notes of how well they work. With this information, you’ll be able to sign up for whichever plan is right for your application.
In the meantime, we will be trying out this service. $5 for 1MB of data per month.
We apologize for the inconvenience here; we were really hoping to find you free cellular service, but it is not going to be available for a while. Please contact us at email@example.com and we will provide you with a compatible Verizon-branded SIM card right away.
