Moving Calyx Sim to Pepwave router

It seems that although it's against the TOS, in the past most who tried have been successful switching the Calyx sim to another router. I am wondering if anyone has recent updates since Calyx switched over to the Tmobile network completely and sent out the new 5g routers.

I have starlink and want to keep the Calyx as the fallback and have it all run through my dual modem Peplink. I have the rectangle starlink dish and the ethernet adaptor. Plan to run that into Peplink with the ethernet plug and would prefer to put the Calyx sim in the peplink as well. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've seen at least one person on the LTE Hacks Facebook group say that he has put many Calyx SIMs in other / better devices over several years and has never had a problem. I think he has a business setting up internet for rural customers. This was fairly recent so I'm pretty sure it includes after the change to T-Mobile.

Of course you never know when they might start enforcing that part of the TOS. I don't think that guy was doing anything special but a lot of people do some "magic" on their routers which means set the IMEI to the same as the approved device. Unfortunately you can't easily do that with a Pepwave.

From what I read on the Calyx site, Calyx themselves don't really care. It's a restriction put on them by the hardware manufacturer. I'm not sure if it is still on the site but they used to have a FAQ which said something like "Can I put it in another device?" and the answer was "Officially no but try it at your own risk".
