New SIM Initial Settings option
When purchasing SIMs directly from the User Console, Soracom pre-registers each SIM in the order to your account. Once you receive your order, the SIM registration process will be completed automatically, saving you time from having to register each SIM one by one.
However, SIM settings such as Group and Speed Class can only be configured after each SIM has been registered and added to your account. While it is possible to select multiple SIMs and configure such settings, doing so for a large number of SIMs has been tedious and has still required waiting until after the SIMs have been registered.
Now, users can now select what initial settings to apply to each SIM in an order prior to registering the SIMs.
After placing an order from either the User Console or Soracom IoT Store, you can specify the following initial settings for each of the subscription plans included in your order:
These initial settings can be configured right away, even before your order has shipped. Once you receive your order and click "Register," the initial settings that you specified for the order will be automatically applied to each SIM as they are registered.
- Certain options or services are configured in a Group and are automatically applied to all SIMs that have been added to that group. When specifying a Group initial setting, this may result in a corresponding increase in option or service fees as soon as the SIMs have been registered and initial settings applied.
- When placing an order from the Soracom IoT Store, you must log into the User Console after completing your order to be able to configure the initial settings for that order.
