Claiming E-series - time to reach pulsing cyan

After originally working with Electrons, we now have moved over to E-series. For whatever reason, the time to claim an E-series (reach pulsing cyan) is on the order of several hours to days. Never had this issue previously with Electrons. Issue with registering E-sims?

This originally happened a couple months ago, and at the time I assumed it was an issue with the telephony partner. However, I am now in the process of claiming another batch of E-series, and again, run into the same issue. I’ve had the devices connected for several hours, and they are still flashing green.

Other relevant info:

  • the email confirming SIM card activation is received almost immediately after entering ICCD.
  • located in Canada (Rogers network?)
  • 3G
  • cell reception is pretty good in the area, but not amazing.

Anyone else run into this? I doubt there is a ‘fix’ per-se, but wanted to understand other peoples experiences with this.

For those of you who come across this post in the future…

I was able to find a solution based on this post:

Note, I don’t have LTE devices, but manually upgrading to 0.8.0 seemed to do the trick.
