Autobahn - Order SIM cards for Pebble Tracker

Hello Pebblers!

We are excited to launch the beta version of Autobahn, a web portal where you can purchase cellular-IoT SIM cards for your Pebble Tracker. We invite you to submit your orders by following the steps below!

:warning: NOTE: Autobahn currently offers SIM cards from 1NCE, which covers 100+ countries. Please ensure your country is supported by 1NCE before purchasing.

If your country is NOT yet supported by 1NCE, please see this thread where we provide additional options.


Prerequisites

Costs

We are providing discounted SIM cards for Pebble Tracker owners – thanks to our partners 1NCE for your support!

The cost for a SIM card is 12 USDT, plus 10-20 USDT for the shipment (depending on the destination country). Currently, the portal only supports payment in USDT on the IoTeX Network: you can buy USDT on mimo by exchanging IOTX or other XRC20 tokens for USDT.

Capacity

Each SIM card comes with 500MB of bandwidth. With the default settings on Pebble Tracker (capture data every 5 minutes, 24/7) this amount of bandwidth will last ~6 months. In the future, we will add the option to add more bandwidth to your SIM card directly via Autobahn.


Step 1: Open Autobahn and Connect MetaMask

Unlock your Metamask account, go to https://autobahn.earth and click the “Sign in” button to login with your Metamask.

Step 2: Check if your region is covered

Switch to the “Buy Sim” page, and check if your country or region is covered by the SIM card provider.

:bulb: Please notice: Even if your country is not covered yet, it could still be added in the future. Meanwhile, you can test different SIM card providers to check if you find one that works in your country: please check the docs to review SIM card specifications, and take a look at this community thread where other users report their experiences with other SIM providers in their countries.

Step 3: Input your shipping address

Click the plus button in the “My Shipping Address” box:

Step 4: Submit your order

  • From the dropdown menu, select the type of SIM card based on your country (pick “China+” if you plan to use it in China, otherwise pick “FlexSIM” for all other countries):

  • Input the amount of SIM cards you need
  • Click the Buy now button:

  • Follow the 6 steps as displayed in the images below (find the IMEI number for your devices on the box label):

Step 5: Monitor your order
