Now that you’ve got a Programmable Wireless SIM with a Rate Plan configured, you’ll want to make sure the SIM is active on the cellular network.
The status of a SIM is its current state on the network. At any given time, a SIM’s status can be one of eight possible values:
status values of a Sim instance are described in the SIMs REST API.
The status of each of your purchased SIMs is indicated in the Status section on the SIMs page, as well as on the Configure tab of a selected SIM:
You can check or change the status of a SIM on the Configure page:
- Open the SIMs section of the Console.
- Select any SIM, which will display Configure tab for that SIM.
- The current status will be shown in the Status dropdown menu.
- You can change the SIM’s status by selecting a different value. Options include New (the default), Ready and Active.

I want to validate that my SIM can connect to the network without initiating a Monthly SIM Fee*.
*Not available for the Narrowband developer plan
Place your SIM in the ready state. You can send up to 250KB of data before it transitions to active. There is no Monthly Recurring Cost on a SIM in this state for up to three months.
I want to quickly test a large number of SIMs without incurring a large Monthly Recurring Cost charge.
See above. Your SIM can live in the ready state for up to three months without charge.
Can a SIM use Programmable Voice or Programmable SMS in the ready state?
No. Currently a SIM must be in the active state to use Programmable Voice and Programmable SMS. This support is coming soon.
To keep a SIM alive but not active, you can change its state to suspended. This is free for three months, so your account will begin to be charged after three months. Please see the support page to learn more about Wireless SIM Billing.
SIMs can’t go directly into a canceled state. The SIM will instead switch into the deactivated state, which is a moratorium status between active and canceled. Your SIM will stay deactivated for 72 hours. If it is not changed to suspended or active, it will automatically become canceled.
Once a SIM is in the canceled state, it is no longer usable. This is useful if the device containing the SIM is stolen or lost, or if you need to terminate a specific device. Switching to the canceled state will ensure that you are no longer charged for that SIM.
Your SIM is live and ready to be used with the capabilities you’ve enabled.
