Step 1: Choose the Right M2M SIM Card or eSIM
Select an M2M SIM card or eSIM from M2M Global Solutions. Determine if your GPS tracker supports physical SIM cards or if it is eSIM-enabled, as this will influence the type of M2M SIM card you need.
Step 2: Activate the M2M SIM Card or eSIM
Activate your M2M SIM card or eSIM conveniently through our M2M SIM Spider platform. Simply log in to the platform and follow the activation process, providing the necessary information such as SIM card number, device IMEI/MEID, and other required details. Our platform allows you to activate your SIM card or eSIM at your own convenience, making the process quick and hassle-free.
Step 3: Insert the SIM Card or Provision the eSIM
If your GPS tracker supports physical SIM cards, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to insert the M2M SIM card correctly. Ensure the device is powered off before inserting or removing the SIM card to prevent any damage.
If your GPS tracker is eSIM-enabled, provision the activated eSIM onto the device using the instructions provided by the M2M SIM Spider platform. This may involve scanning a QR code or entering activation details manually.
Step 4: Configure APN Settings
Access the settings or configuration menu of your GPS tracker device. Locate the Access Point Name (APN) settings and enter “global.m2mgs” as the APN. This APN ensures seamless connectivity with our M2M network infrastructure.
Step 5: Test Connectivity
Power on the GPS tracker device and ensure it is within cellular coverage. Wait for the device to establish a connection with the network. Once connected, verify if the device is transmitting location data or any other required information. Conduct a test to confirm the data connectivity and ensure the GPS tracker functions properly with the M2M SIM card or eSIM.

Step 7: Troubleshooting
