I’m writing about the Electron upcoming release. This is in context of TM’s 200M free data plans. Of course there is a catch: one must activate the SIM under the IMEI which will be used with the 200M plan. The activation is a web GUI with plenty of java script etc so activation can’t really occur using some kind of Lynx style text browser. I am pointing that out in the probable suggestion to use the Electron as a modem and serial terminal arrangement to activate.
So will the Electron allow one to edit its IMEI? That way one can activate the SIM using a typical USB stick and then once activated move the SIM onto the Electron and change the IMEI with that one used for the activation?
