To connect the Nordic Thingy:91 to the cloud, you need an IoT enabled SIM card that can connect to available networks in your region. The iBasis card included in the kit has coverage in most regions (download coverage map for more information, updated February 8th, 2021). Remember whether your network supports LTE-M or NB-IoT and power saving modes (eDRX or PSM).
If iBasis does not have coverage in your region, please see our cellular connectivity partners page, contact your local Regional Sales Manager or local network operator to purchase a local IoT SIM.
If your region does not have eDRX or PSM power saving features support, you will still be able to see sensor data on nRF Cloud, but the GNSS position feature may not work.
More information on regulatory certifications can be found under the Overview tab.
To ensure optimal functionality, please update the nRF9160 SiP modem FW and then the nRF9160 SiP app FW in that order in the video below.

Get started with development
To get started, please follow the Getting started with Thingy:91 guide.
To develop applications for the Thingy:91, you will use the nRF Connect SDK, which contains a variety of compatible libraries and samples. We also have a dedicated guide for development on Thingy:91, see Developing with Thingy:91.
For more information on the Thingy:91 hardware development platform, see the Thingy:91 Hardware Description. If you have further questions, check out the Thingy:91 FAQ on DevZone.
