The mobile broadband device is off.

DeviceReady | deviceReady1

The device is powered on and ready for mobile broadband operations.

SimNotInserted | simNotInserted2

The SIM card is not valid. This can occur when PIN Unblock Key attempts have exceeded the limit.

DeviceHardwareFailure | deviceHardwareFailure4

The mobile broadband device hardware is not responding.

AccountNotActivated | accountNotActivated5

A subscription account for the mobile broadband device is not active.

DeviceLocked | deviceLocked6

The mobile broadband device is locked by a PIN or password preventing the device from initializing and registering with a wireless network.

DeviceBlocked | deviceBlocked7

The mobile broadband device is blocked by a PIN or password preventing the device from initializing and registering with a wireless network.


Mobile operator Windows Store apps can have access to different states of the device. Access to the device states such as device readiness, account activation state, and device lock status are made available through the NetworkDeviceStatus enumeration. The radio state information is available through the CurrentRadioState enumeration. Note that these are two different states. For example, a radio state Off does not translate to a DeviceNotReady state and vice versa.
