Do you know how to check what APN was used from the ISP to confirm if it is the correct one?
What? If you have a proper APN then you can connect to internet and receive any IPv4 or IPv6 address from ISP. Many commangs or logs can proof that.
When I set apn="" then have connection but I haven't in logs any information about receive apn and I cannot answer you.
[marcin.przysowa@SXTR_LTE6] > put [interface lte get lte1 running ]
[marcin.przysowa@SXTR_LTE6] > put ([interface lte info lte1 once as-value ]->"session-uptime")
In the US, there are multiple APNs often on the same ISP. If you choose the wrong APN, your service will be limited in the wrong way, or you will not be allowed to connect. This is why I'm trying to get it just right.
Then you must set it manually.
You should ask your ISP what APN you should use and create a easy script who will be set this on base some parameters.
Maybe you should receive SMS with counter of used MB/GB and then change the APN to have other offer from ISP - some ISP do that policy and on differ APN give differ limitation.
I am EMEA\Poland and don't know your US networks and ISP politics.
I can only with write a proper and shortest and most optimal script but you must give me information to build a proper IF loop.
If the first option does not work, I will be using a script to just check the IMSI since we only work with 2 vendors and they have different MNC numbers in the IMSI. This is the method I've been expecting, I just haven't followed through.
In my opinion is the best way.
You should check what will be with your lhgr with wrong apn and empty apn. No connection but imsi will be show at Cellular tab or status registration in network itself or nothing until apn will be correct.
I cannot check this in my country.
Best table is:

<- with MCC,NNC,APN
You should check some of them in reality of IMSI codes.
In my example in PL my IMSI is:
Scan give me MCC-MNC: 26001
and other's ISP in PL have got just other one digits.
[marcin.przysowa@SXTR_LTE6] > interface lte scan lte1
Flags: C - current, A - available, F - forbidden
OPERATOR MCC-MNC ACCESS-TECHNOLOGY RSSI RSRP RSRQ
CP 26001 Evolved 3G (LTE) -73dBm -104dBm -15.5dB
Play 26006 Evolved 3G (LTE)
Orange 26003 Evolved 3G (LTE)
TM PL 26002 Evolved 3G (LTE)
But we have got the Virtual ISP who share the same FOUR MCC-MNC and I must (in old days) provide a correct APN value. Now all ISP use just "internet" as default apn and I can plug any SIM card from any ISP. You must try empty apn and if this not work then only manual settings give you a connection.
