Question / Issue
Can I change GSM carriers simply by replacing the SIM?

Answer / Solution
In addition to a SIM from the new cellular carrier with the proper data plan features activated, you must also change the GPRS APN name and Username/Password settings on the LAN-Cell's WAN/Cellular Modem configuration screen.

Contact your new GSM carrier to obtain the correct APN, Username and Password information for your account.  You may also need to change the System DNS values if your carrier does not provide these values via DHCP when your LAN-Cell connects to their network.

The complete APN initialization configuration string is (double quotation marks required):

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","APN-NAME
","",0,0

Once your configuration changes are complete, power off the LAN-Cell, change the SIM card, then restart the device to connect to the new carrier.
