If you've used the Hologram Dashboard or REST API in the past you have likely noticed the
state parameter. This is used to indicate the state of the SIM with regards to the network.
Below are the values possible for the
state parameter in our REST API:
INACTIVE This one is implicit as looking up a SIM that has not been activated would return an empty JSON object
READY or LIVE This state indicates that your SIM is able to connect to the network, but not actively in a data session. You will see ready on the Dashboard and Live via the REST API
PAUSED-USER This state indicates that your SIM is in a user set pause
PAUSED-SYS This state indicates that your SIM is in a system set pause
TEST-HIBERNATE This state indicates that your SIM is in the Test Hibernate Preflight mode
TEST-AUTOACTIVATE This state indicates that your SIM is in the Auto-Activate Preflight mode
TEST-ACTIVATE This state indicates that your SIM is in the Test Activate Preflight mode
DEAD This state indicates that your SIM has been permanently deleted
Pending states are transitional states that indicate which state a SIM is transitioning to. They are:
Connected This state indicates that your SIM is currently in an open data session with a cellular tower.
