Anyone using an XBee 3 LTE-M/NB-IoT with T-mobile?

0 votes
Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has had any success using an Xbee 3 LTE-M/NB-IoT module with T-mobile. The specs on it say that it is NOT "T-Mobile End Device Certified" yet the device supports the band that I'm looking at using (Band 4) supported by T-mobile. Anyone tried this combination of network and hardware? Also can anyone shed light on what it means to be "T-mobile End Device Certified"?

T-Mobile has specific requirements that the XBee 3 CAT M does not meet. As such, it is not capable of being certified for use with T-Mobile.

okay thanks, specific requirements such as?
It has been too many years for me to recall what exact functions the CAT M does not support.

In North America, to onboard a cellular product, the product needs to be certified by the carrier (in addition to FCC and PTCRB).

Outside of North America, carriers usually don't have this kind of restriction.

It is not about whether or not you can connect, but whether or not you can connect ***legally***.
