BG96 Connectivity Issue


I appear to be having issues connecting to any networks with a BG96 modem. I have been able to power up the modem however have not had much luck getting anything connected.

My model is BG96MAR02A04M1G.

AT+CREG?/AT+CEREG? reports 0,0 and AT+CSQ reports 99,99, however an antenna is connected.
AT+CFUN? reports 1, AT+COPS=? reports CME Error: operation not allowed.
I have tried multiple IOT sims (Hologram, Particle etc, both activated) but no luck on either.

Can anyone please advise what I may need to do to get this module working.

Kind Regards.

Have you tried using the different antenna’s… That made a difference for me.
