Are there any provisioning steps required to begin using the EHS5-US with a SIM Card installed? | Thales IoT Developer Community

In our application, the SIM card is installed at assembly but it is NOT activated with our MVNO. Once our product is shipped, the user enters in some information to our website which then sends a command to our MVNO to activate the SIM card. (Q1)Once the SIM card is activated - are there any AT commands required to be sent to the module before we can begin using data connections? I am aware that we must wait for the PBReady to be displayed, but that happens automatically. I have a concept board, and I was able to simply activate the SIM card using my MVNO's portal. After inserting the SIM card and waiting for PBReady, everything simply started working (I was able to send text messages and establish data conenctions). (Q2) Is this the correct procedure and can this be repeated in mass production?
