Problem with Verizon SIM on EM7455

Hi, we have a problem with the Verizon 4G LTE SIM card with our 7455 module. On our embedded board, at+cpin? will return ‘SIM not inserted’.
On the Sierra Wireless eval board with the same Verizon SIM card, the at+cpin works ok, but we are not able to get it to connect to the cell network. I tried vzwinternet and all other common APNs, but still it does not attach to the cell network.

I tried both GENERIC and VERIZON images. Both behave the same.

My ATT and Tmobile SIM cards all work fine on both our embedded board, and on the Sierra Wireless eval board.

Thanks for all your input

Could you get the following AT command returns when using the Verizon SIM on your embedded board?

  • ATI
  • AT!IMPREF?
  • AT+CGDCONT?
  • AT!GSTATUS?
  • AT!PCINFO?
  • AT!CUSTOM?

Hi Tomato, thanks for your reply. Here are the output for the commands you like me to run. These are run on the Sierra eval kit with a EM7455 module and a Verizon SIM. The problem I am having is that the module cannot connect to the network.

The same module works perfectly with a Tmobile and AT&T SIM card.
