Hi I have a cf-19(cf-19RHRAG1M) with Gobi 2000 and cannot find a sim card to activate it. I checked with Verizon and Sprint and they don't have cards anymore so how can I get this to work? In the connection it shows Verizon Wireless under mobile broadband.
Thanks for the help
Gale Lee

What operating system? W7?

In device manager are you showing several Gobi entries?

Are you running VZAM? I'll see what my MK3 CF-30 looks like in a while.

Did you install the Gobi card and are you sure it's a Panasonic card?

Guys,

Stop.

This is a 3G ONLY card. Their are no 3G SIM cards for VERIZON OR SPRINT as they are CDMA. Only time you would need a SIM for 3G is for AT&T which you are not using.

You have to contact Verizon and give them the valid IMEI and MEID number from the VZAM software and they can activate it for you!

Thanks!
