    1717As a general rule, you need to have obtained the following from your Service Provider to use M2M devices in linux:
    18  * GSM modems:
     18 * (4G) LET and (3G) GSM modems:
    1919  * A SIM card and the following details:
    2020   * APN - Access Point Name
     
    2222   * username - often optional but may be required by your provider
    2323   * password - often optional but may be required by your provider
    24  * UMTS modems:
     24 * (3G) UMTS modems:
    2525  * A modem that has been previously 'activated' by your provider. This involves providing the provider with the IMEI (unique identifier on the modem/module), the provider adding it to their system, and you 'activating' the module (which usually requires a Windows PC and application if not already done by the provider of the module)
