Cricket wireless data only plan with pepwave?

Has anyone signed up with or used a Cricket Wireless Data only Plan with a Pepwave?

|Plan Name|20 GB|40 GB|100 GB|

|High-Speed Data Allowance*|20 GB|40 GB|100 GB|

I signed up for a Cricket simply data plan, but I haven’t been able to get it to work yet on my balance 20x. I’ve heard the APN settings need to be changed, but I’m not sure how to do that. I submitted a help ticket, I’ll update here.

I have used cricket dataplans before you need to set the APN to ndo.

Did you get the Cricket Simply Data plan working, and how are the speeds and latency consistency on the peplink for you?

Wonder if you got it working and how it is performing?

I am interested to know this too.

I did the simply data plan for my balance 20x - you need to change operator settings to “custom” and add “ndo” into the APN field for the SIM card on the cellular modem.

Should connect, register, and grab at IP address with those settings…

The performance was good until I used my allocated data.

I’m using the Pepwave Max Mini and used the “custom” and set the APN to “ndo” and it connected no problem.

Signup was easy on the max transit cat 18, and the pepwave was able to get text message from cricket too without issue (to complete signup). Just had to set the APN to ndo and it was up and running. A nice new option. Thanks very much for the info and feedback.

Silly question: how can the pepwave cat-18 receive a text message? I would need this too to complete my account with T-Mobile. I got the new 100GB data plan from them and it works out of the box :slight_smile:

SIM Toolkit which is under the advanced menu I think. Then Tool: SMS

Works like a charm, thanks!
