Video Walkthrough to SIM Setup

Coming soon! This walkthrough will demonstrate ordering and setting up your Wireless SIM card.

Ordering your SIM Card

In your portal, navigate to the "Wireless" section. From there select "Order Free SIM" and proceed to the checkout. Note that it may take some time for your SIM card to arrive. Please reach out to support@telnyx.com or our online chat to inquire about your order.

Configuring Your SIM Card

Registration

Once again, in your portal navigate to the "Wireless" section. From there, select the "Register SIM Cards" section. Enter the 10-digit registration code located on your SIM card. You can add multiple registration codes at once separating each by a comma. If you wish to designate the cards with a specific tag or assign your SIM card(s) to a specific group, you may do that here as well. For example:

Finish the registration process by clicking "Register SIM". Note, this can also be done programmatically:

curl -X POST 
--header "Content-Type: application/json"
--header "Accept: application/json"
--header "Authorization: Bearer KEYXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
--data '{
"registration_codes": ["1234567890", "0987654321"],
"sim_card_group_id": "group_id",
"tags": ["tag1", "tag2", "tag3"]
}'

See our API Reference for more information.

Device Configuration

Insert your SIM card into the device. Now, you will need to configure the APN. Note the following:

  • APN Settings on Android Devices: Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > Add.
  • APN Settings on iOS Devices: Settings > Cellular > Mobile Data > APN.

Once you have a new APN up, enter the following:

  • Name: Telnyx
  • APN: data00.telnyx
  • Leave all other fields unmodified even if it's blank and save this new APN.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you enable data roaming on your device and you are good to go. (Note, some devices may require you to reboot in order for the changes to take effect)
