PLS63 check network without registering | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

We would like to check network signal during factory test before the SIM has been activated.

Previously we've used the PLS62 modems, where the AT^SNMON command returns a long list of visible networks on all bands and providers.

But with the PLS63 we're having trouble getting it to return values. We sometimes get one or two channels, but often get a single zero response lilke below:

^SNMON: "INS4G",0,"00000000","0000000000000000"

Are there any special requirements to get this working? We've tried disconnecting the network with AT+COPS=2 first, but this doesn't seem to help.
