By pass setup sim

I have just got electron device here and I am trying to setup it from mobile app Spark but it gives me two option either

“Activate only sim” OR " Setup electron w/sim card"

But i am going to use my own country cellular sim as the Particle SIM is not going to be supported in my country (Nepal).

Please help.


Use Setup electron with SIM card, but when asked for your ICCID, enter your 3rd party SIM ICCID. It will take you to a separate page for 3rd party SIM cards.

Just to point this out before you stumble over it:
With a 3rd party SIM you’d need to put these lines at the top of each firmware you’ll want to flash to your Electron

#include "cellular_hal.h"
STARTUP(cellular_credentials_set(APN, USERNAME, PASSWORD, NULL));

see here
