Thanks Sara! Yes I have been over both the GPRS bee thread and the LTEM thread here on the forums and the Github thread a bunch. I added a crude “capacitor chain” with the recommended values between bee pin stubs power and ground, a jumper wire between reset and pin A5 and a capacitor on that reset jumper wire as well. It doesn’t fire up at all without the capacitors or the jumper. The last thing I wanted to try before I gave up with it was a smaller battery as I have a 3.7V 6600 mah lipo hooked up that is reading 4.88V fully charged. Somewhere in the Bee manual it said the highest voltage the thing likes is 4.2(I think) so I thought it might be cutting itself off when it saw that the voltage was too high. I was getting activity on the hologram dash though so it was connecting fine, and XCTU said it had full signal since I’m right next to a tower.
