Do Tello SIM cards work?

Subject of the issue

Can’t get new Tello SIM card online. They run on T-Mobile network. Tried tech support–not much help. Should I go with a known SIM card provider (Virginia, USA) that works??

Your environment


Steps to reproduce

  • inserted SIM
  • powered on
  • tried updating APN string to several different recommended values (from Tello and T-Mobile)
  • continue to receive errors: error: couldn’t get home network: QMI protocol error (16): ‘NotProvisioned’

UPDATE: confirmed SIM works in an old phone, but still same errors in the AutiPi

Expected behaviour

Hoping the device would come online

Actual behaviour

It did not come online
