I’ve just received the Particle Electron and added a 3rd party sim card to the device (after activation, adding funds to it, getting 500mb of data).
I’m getting the status lights as they should be (breathing the correct colors). Does this mean the 3rd party sim is working and communicating as it should?
I’m only asking as some thread says you must include 2 lines of code at the top of every script for 3rd party cellular to work, but I’ve not, and it still breaths as it should. The code I’m supposed to use (but not)…
#include "cellular_hal.h" STARTUP(cellular_credentials_set("broadband", "", "", NULL));
- Do we not need this code at all now?
- Does the firmware remember cellular data now? (I remember flashing it locally after tell Particle my APN details, so guessing it probably does)
- Is there a quick and easy way to tell? I’ve tried httpclient but not got it working as yet.
Thanks for your time. Just looking to clarify this for me and future users.
