Thank you for the question.
I have not tried entering anything that is printed on the module.
The E Series setup requests something of the form XXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX which is not printed on top. For the installed module the printed number on the paper sleeve was not anything that was shown on the module itself. The ID on the paper sleeve is decidedly alpha-numeric.
My electron setup used an 18 digit + 1 checksum digit number printed on the plastic card. It worked first time with that. The IMEI printed on the module is 15 digits without checksum digit.
I could try, but I have not.
