First post, but long time Pepwave hardware user here. I recently purchased a Max Transit Cat18 to replace a 2013 vintage Max BR1. I’m currently in the middle of a “debate” with AT&T about provisioning me a SIM on my existing 100GB data-only plan. Long story, but it comes down to them wanting me to purchase a replacement ZTE MF279 that came with the data plan. The ZTE is a pile of garbage, to put it politely! AT&T has been trying to lookup the IMEI for the Max Transit and is claiming it shows up as not compatible with their network according to AT&T online support. Ok, whatever…
For grins, I went to the discount Cricket Wireless (AT&T Owned, AT&T Network) to see what they offered for data-only plans should I be unsuccessful in dealing direct with AT&T. Cricket Wireless offers data only, BYOD plans and they run you through an IMEI lookup process on their website. Well, lo and behold, it comes back with this:
“Yay! Your LM960A18 is Compatible”
And then proceeds to the SIM ordering process.
They offer 20 & 40 GB plans. 40GB as of this date is $50.
Just wanted to provide this info for anyone with newer model Max devices that might be having an issue with AT&T. If I end having to try Cricket, I’ll update this thread with my findings.
