Is your Mi-Fi device network locked @LeeTuck_1008290
They are often locked to the network that originally sold the device.

Although SMARTY uses the Three network, it is a MVNO and therefore technically a different service provider.

Hi I have purchased a Smarty data only SIM to work with a TP-Link Mifi unit. It states that the SIM is not connected and the IP address is a string of zeros. Other SIM work very easily. Am I missing something that needs to be configured, The Smarty SIM works fine in the phone

@GrahamW_2413247  You need to check that the APN is set to mob.asm.net

Thanks I have done, but with no joy. We have awful connectivity here which may explain the problem. My TP-Link Mifi still says that the SIM is ready but disconnected

@GrahamW_2413247 Have you completed both a Coverage Check and a Network Status Check?
