WE826Q / EM7455 - connects to LTE bands but no internet

So i bought a WE826-Q to run a ATT Tablet sim.

Everything looks good except that the modem just says "Connecting".

AT!Gstatus? - RETURNS:

Current Time: 499 Temperature: 44
Reset Counter: 1 Mode: ONLINE
System mode: LTE PS state: Not attached
LTE band: B12 LTE bw: 10 MHz
LTE Rx chan: 5060 LTE Tx chan: 4294967295
EMM state: Deregistered Attach Needed
RRC state: RRC Idle
IMS reg state: No Srv

Fiddled around with APN settings and TTL, but nothing it making this thing actually connect to the internet.

Also tried using another sim i have working on a Huaweii B310 on Claro Puerto Rico service. Same thing happens. connects to the towers but no internet connection,

Not sure if i missing something .. any help is appreciated
