How to Bulk Update Programmable Wireless SIMs

If you need to configure multiple Programmable Wireless SIMs on a single Twilio account, we have a Node.js script and a .csv spreadsheet file which will help you do so.

The script will not allow you to transfer SIMs between accounts.



This guide will not work for Super SIMs. To bulk update super SIMs, please see the How to Use Console Bulk Actions to Update Multiple Super SIMs.

This guide assumes you are familiar with the Twilio platform and Git, and are able to install and use Node.js and Node Package Manager (npm).



The script described in this guide is intended to be used if you are managing a fleet of Programmable Wireless SIMs, but it may also come in useful if you are looking for a code example that makes use of the Programmable Wireless API.
