I purchased a Switchbox unit to allow me to activate my plane's heater from my home so that it would be warm by the time I got to the airport.

It worked. I let it sit tuned off for two months or so, when tried to use it, not working. Sent it back to maker. When returned, still not working. Maker can test it remotely and says its all OK.

Unit can be turned on/off by cell phone or via APP on internet. Neither work.

I have an AT&T SIM card with lots of money in it
When I call the unit I get "Welcome to Verizon wireless network. Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please hang up and try again."

Why do I get Verizon when I have an AT&T SIM card?

Maker seems to have given up trying to fix the unit, saying his checking shows it works fine....but it doesn't !!!

Any hints would be appreciated. I am in for about $400 on this thing now.

After exhaustive work on the Switchbox I finally gave up. I could not get it to work via cell phone call or the internet APP.

I am going to simply discard the unit after spending about $600 on it, shipping back and forth, and SIM card money.

Too bad...the unit looks like a quality product, but the means of connecting needs a major change.
