The whole idea of this new (since 2021) iSocket is that it is a hassle-free solution where end users do not have to think about SIM cards, networks and so on. The first 10 years (since 2010) that we only sold hardware our support team was overfilled with questions about numerous problems related to SIM cards and SMS deliverability. We would say that about 99% of the problems were for this reason. We won't that poor experience to our customers anymore.
In any case, you should have paid your mobile operator for the SIM card and data usage. SMS control is not even considered - this is an outdated technology that does not allow any quality real-time monitoring. Delivery of non-human generated SMS in many countries is regulated and more and more countries impose restrictions on this. This is especially true in North America and Australia. It is also noticeable that the SMS-only plans have become a rarity.
The main plans of mobile operators are designed to use a large amount of data for Internet browsing. Special plans for IoT (Internet of Things) usually have a small amount of data for a considerable fee. Our plans are developed in proportion to the features used and they are more beneficial for you that any plans from local operators.
Additionally, you get not just a bare connectivity but an all-in-one solution. On the top of just connectivity that you would anyway need to buy from your provider you get an absolutely convenient interface for managing your iSocket, guaranteed connection to ANY available mobile network and we after all will be able to provide effective support, which is impossible when clients use their own SIM cards.
In all respects, the new iSocket with built-in connectivity is much better!
Not saying that this is iSocket to last - it supports all modern mobile technologies that are here to stay for next decades.
