Have followed all prompts and instructions to setup my Nokia 5G Modem. Light remains red. Have assessed nearest 5G tower, less than 400m away, pointing in the correct direction. Tried numerous rooms in my house, different locations. Left on for long periods of time to allow chance to establish connection. No luck.
Been on hold for approximately 90 minutes. Very frustrating.
I can't even ask questions via MyOptus app, or online, or via email or anything. My Optus app not showing my account details. Absolutely no way to contact.
Optus please get back to me.

If the central 4G signal indicator is red and all other lights on your modem are off, follow the steps below:
@Ray_YCI tried those instructions numerous times.
Turns out, after 2.5 hours on hold, that the SIM wasn't activated at Optus' end. I have been told that an IT ticket has been made and it will take 2 or 3 days to fix, guess we will see. Very frustrating that the system/modem/service is sent out, but it's not activated.
Today is Saturday 18th April 2020. So it has been 10 days since I first posted here and received my modem. Still no internet and no support actioned.
My SIM is not activated. It wasn't activated upon arrival. The Optus representative who I spoke to on 8th April 2020 lodged an IT service ticket to get my SIM activated. They have still not actioned.
I have spent a total of 4 hours on hold (once on the 8th April and also on 16th April).
Both times, I asked that the customer service representatives call back the following day to give me an update and both times no call back. They both agreed to do so at the time. Very disappointed and quite frankly I think it's very poor customer service.Have wasted my time.
Will give another update if this service even gets activated, let alone if it works at all.
Please call me if any representative reads this, it's completely unreasonable to have no action completed for 10 days.
That does sound extremely frustrating.
I'm afraid we don't have visibility of customer accounts here on this public forum.
