Re: Can I change the sim in my smart modem gen 2?

Yes you can change the SIM to a Telstra data SIM. I not sure if a phone SIM will work. Will need to change the profile in the Technicolor modem (Advanced > Configuration) to telstra.internet. On the Arcadyan modem change APN to telstra.internet and data APN to telstra.internet (Advanced > Internet > LTE) 

 

You can't use a SIM from another smart modem to use the other modems broadband account.

This is news to me, I was always under the impression that the modem would have some killswitch type feature on the 4g backup if not using the provided SIM.

Good to know

The data is metered against the account associated with the SIM and the speed is no longer limited to 6/1 Mbps.

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
