I installed a Teyes CC3 unit about a month ago. I have a Verizon unlimited data plan and hotspot so I was using this combination to receive WiFi. It was a bit inconsistent so I called Verizon and negotiated a good monthly rate for an added android tablet line. I picked up a sim card from Verizon and installed it in the sim card slot as shown in the Teyes direction or what appeared to be the sim slot. The unit indicates 2 sim slots but I could only locate one. The exposed sim slot was poorly installed and it was tricky to insert the sim card. I now wonder if the two sim slots are hidden behind the perimeter trim? After installing the sim card it did not show up on the sim card interface. I called Verizon to activate the sim card to confirm it was properly installed and the rep. stated that Verizon does NOT support the Teyes android unit! Question: 1. Could anyone confirm if they have been able to connect to Verizon with a Verizon sim card? 2. Is the sim slot(s) visible on the unit or are they buried behind the plastic trim piece. Thank you

Does it have an external sim reader.The joying I have has to have the card all the way to the right on the reader for the unit to pick up the card.I am also trying to get onto the Verizon network, but no dice. I had to trick the network into thinking my unit is a phone for them to give me service, that's as far as I got. Still playing with the APN settings, but nothing get.

Did you ever find an answer to this? I have a verizon sim card as well. Shows 4G but no actual data

Didn't pursue this further after Verizon stated they don't support the T'eyes unit. I just use Hotspot on my unlimited data Verizon plan. I downloaded a Hotspot Automatic app so with Hotspot activated my phone automatically connects to the T'eyes when I turn on the radio. Works fine.

What app did you use?

See, I still want this to work without my phone hotspot because I'm not the only one who drives the car (and/or has an unlimited plan).
I have a spare Verizon sim for the summer that I'm parking (Visible, my kid is going away to camp) and I notice that when I put it in, I'm getting bars, and a 4G/lte icon. It is connected to the network, but I think the APN just won't populate and it won't let me set it manually.
If it didn't work, there wouldn't be bars I think. I mean, it's obviously registering itself on the network. I've used this sim in plenty of "unsupported" phones before, as long as it supports the right LTE bands, Verizon is basically a GSM carrier now. They will tell you otherwise, but even GSM unlocked phones seem to work in my experience as long as they are activated elsewhere first.

Yeah I’m unable to view them on my iPhone. Google says if carrier allows to check in cellular data settings but mine don’t show there
Sorry, you can try googling the apn settings for your carrier, or maybe put it in an Android phone. Or contact your carrier and ask them. There isn't really a network-wide setting that we can give you. I can tell you what I used on my visible line, but it's different then page plus or Verizon post paid or any other Verizon line would be so I'm not sure how useful it would be unless you're also using Visible.

I was able to get internet working on my Teyes CC3 with the following settings, although I will mention that I had to use a 3rd party APN app to unlock the edit function as default it is locked through the android interface.

I spent 2 hours trying to use other recommended APN settings using mms.vtext.com etc and they never worked.

Any options not listed were left as blank, no set, etc.

    I ended up using this one.

    It just opens the default android settings, but it does let me save what I change. The other app in the previous posted video did NOT work for me on my teyes cc3
