Vodafone simcard

Hello All,

I received some NB-IoT sim cards form Vodafone for testing to our server. At this moment I got an issue with getting the GPRS attachment.

I have edited the settings to:

Ntype = 3

MNO Profile = 100

APN= nb.inetd.gdsp

Force Operator= 0

Did someone have the same issue? Whit the Vodafone sim cards provided by Sodaq its is working well. Here my log.

Dear @vink,

We send you activated Vodafone SIMs. Could it be that you need to activate the SIMs you received from Vodafone directly?

Maybe changing one of the following settings will help:

100 = Europe
19 = Vodafone

0 should be auto operator
20404 should force Vodafone Netherlands.

Best regards,
Jan

It looks like I had the wrong APN. I used nb.inetd.gdsp and for my sim card a difference APN was required.
