I've lost connection, what should I do?

The tower companies constantly do upgrades to their towers which occasionally means the devices connected to them have to be power cycled to clear the towers cache of old information.

To do this, unplug your device and leave it unplugged.

If you have a device that the SIM card is easily accessible, remove the SIM card. DO NOT PULL ON THE SIM. You want to slightly push it in and you will hear a click and then the card ejects, you can then pull it out.

Wait 5 minutes with the SIM out and the power unplugged.

Reinsert the SIM card. You will hear another click as the SIM catches.

Plug the unit back in and give it up to 10 minutes to reconnect.


If this does not get you back online, the next step would be to verify that the APN is set properly on your device. There is a knowledgebase article available for your cellular device and the plan you are on, that will walk you through that process.

If at any time you need our help though, please don't hesitate to call or start a ticket. These KB articles are for people who want to do it on their own, but just know we are always glad to help walk you through it if you need our help.
