OID_WWAN_SERVICE_ACTIVATION instructs miniport drivers to initiate service activation in order to gain access to the provider's network.

Query requests are not supported.

Miniport drivers must process set requests asynchronously, initially returning NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION_REQUIRED to the original request, and later sending an NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_SERVICE_ACTIVATION status notification containing an NDIS_WWAN_SERVICE_ACTIVATION structure to initiate service activation in order to gain access to the provider's network when they have completed the transaction.


For more information about using this OID, see MB Service Detection and Activation.

Miniport drivers can access the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM card) or the provider network when processing query or set requests.

The MB Service uses OID_WWAN_SERVICE_ACTIVATION in the case where the service activation process requires miniport driver and user interactions.

This is not needed for miniport driver initiated or out-of-band manual service activations such as calling into the service provider's helpdesk. After the device is activated as in the above scenarios, if the current miniport driver ReadyState is WwanReadyStateNotActivated, the miniport driver shall proceed with MB initialization and notify the MB Service of ready-state change using NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_READY_INFO INDICATION .

Miniport drivers should return NDIS_STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED if they do not support miniport driver-based service activation.



Available in Windows 7 and later versions of Windows.
