User Provided tested SIM pictures
Base on community post:
The 71324 is the SKU for the AT&T latest UICC. The 2022 is the Vendor and Version number.
Some cards the vendor numbers are
2 - G&D 3 - Gemalto 4 - Oberthur
Usually user will get CME ERROR 13 (sim failure), rather than CME ERROR 10 (sim not inserted) when 3G SIM not working.
CME ERROR: 32 is Network not allowed, emergency calls only, might because the card not activated.
