Summary

In some cases the Cradlepoint Modem may not have a SIM card installed, and it may be necessary to insert a SIM Card yourself.  Cradlepoint has different Modem Types, each with a unique way of inserting a SIM card.  This Article is intended to assist the user in understanding how to install a SIM card into the different types of Cradlepoint Products.


The SIM slots in these Cradlepoint products are designed to accept "Mini-SIM" cards, also referred to as a "2FF". These "Mini-SIM" cards measure 25.0mm x 15.0mm x 0.76mm.

User-added image

Please note: the smaller "micro-SIM" (3FF; 15.0mm x 12.0mm x 0.76mm) and "nano-SIM" (4FF; 12.3mm x 8.8mm x 0.67mm) cards will NOT fit in the Cradlepoint's SIM card slot. Cradlepoint cannot guarantee correct modem operation if a micro or nano SIM is used with an adapter.

Using an incorrect type of SIM will void the warranty!

NOTE:  The AER1600N/M (No Modem) is a model without an internal modem.

Note: The IBR200 does not have the same sim door function that you would find on other IBR models. There is a GPIO attached to the SIM door that triggers a soft shutoff of the modem when the SIM door opens while the router stays on. This is not a "hot swap" of the sim. This is just an extra safety feature that was added on the IBR200.
