I received my pre-order Boron and Xenon. I went ahead with setting up the Boron first.
Everything went smoothly with the mobile iPhone app, until it was time to activate the SIM and connect to the Internet/Cloud. (As part of the setup, the app updated the Boron’s FW. I would assume that this was done from the iPhone via BLE? Slick! The FW update seemed to complete successfully.)
Post supposed SIM activation, I’ve now got a blinking (not breathing) green Boron.
I’m in the US (A few miles north of Longmont, Colorado). I have no idea if LTE-M1 service is available here.
Yes, the antenna is connected
I have a battery connected that came with one of my electron kits. I’ve tried both with USB connected and not. Tried moving the Boron close to a window, in case signal is weak.
I agreed to sign up for the $4.95/month service, through the app, which I guess includes both cellular and 1 mesh gateway. However, I don’t see that I’ve signed up the Boron in the particle console. (While I do see my 5 electrons and 1 photon).
I just ordered an Ethernet featherwing, as I think it will be handy for development purposes.
Not sure what to do from here… Any help appreciated!
