Just purchased Pepwave Max-Br1-Mini-LTE-US-T “AND” a Verizon Sim card from 3gstore.c o m. Inserted SIM card fine. Connect WiFi fine. See that the Pepwave did connect to the VErizon switch, got IP address, gateway and DNS server IP’s. See signal level RSSI -70 Dbm. -8 S/N. LTE Band 13. Looks like Pepwave is talking to the VErizon switch. HOWEVER… When I try to add the Pepwave on my Verizon account, I tried adding as other device-USB Modem-4G Modem. I enter the IMEI number anf Verizon website gives error that the device is not compatible with the Verizon network because it is not GPS compatible, Tried the ESN #, MEID ICCID numbers. All gave similar errors, "Not compatible with Verizon Network:.
Took the information to the Verizon store and the agent tried adding the Pepwave to my account. He got the same error.
I saw this thread: Pepwave MAX BR1 Verizon activation …
It says Verizon users in N. America need model MAX-BR1-LTE-V-T. The folks at 3gstore.c o m do not show that model # on the website nor did they offer it live.
CORRECTION: MAX-BR1-Mini-LTE-A is available on the 3gstore But there is a required checkbox stating that “I understand the BR1 Mini LTE-A is not certified for use on Verizon”
Is it possible I just need a pre-activated SIM card form Verizon?
Can someone help, please?
