The vehicles do in fact have SIM cards, it is the only way it can talk on the cellular network. I was concerned it may not be easily accessible but will do some trial and error on my vehicle. It does not matter if you have an active data plan or an Onstar subscription, the connection is still very much active and sending data to GM. This has been verified by forensic data analysis. There is an option to disable certain functions of Onstar, which in turn limits some of the data GM receives. We as the user do not have this ability. You must press the blue Onstar button and request remote disable from an advisor. This still does not stop certain functions from reporting back to GM. For many this may not be an issue. As someone very much in the trenches of cyber security and data privacy, I was taken back at what is going on here. It is not just GM, but that is the only vehicle I currently own that has the capabilities.
I do a lot with data security. Today I learned something new about these trucks, their data collection habits and undocumented sharing with GM in which I have no say or control. I will not touch my truck until I know how to disable LTE. Does anyone have any insights on where the SIM card for the LTE modem is housed? I would like to remove it and see where things go from there.
I got just over 17.5% off MSRP on my LT 3500 Duramax out the door.

Links are for Chevy diesel, but do cross over to GMC gasser.
Just curious if anyone has added this to their 2500/3500? I have read through a few posts on the 1500 side and I found a really good price on the kit, sd card and activation code.
By chance I came across this truck which has both the bed view camera and the rear camera mirror. At least on a Chevy, looks like you have to re-add the rear view mirror (and its full cost, even though its included in the Convenience Package II) when building the vehicle and selecting the bed view camera... However if I were to build a Chevy or GMC, it doesn't allow both options. I wonder if this is a glitch on the web site and maybe it orders up okay at the dealer?
I had this issue with my order. I opted to add the Bed View Camera with the delete of HD vision. My priority was the bed view camera, the review mirror was a bonus. Not sure if that was the smart move but it is what it is now. My truck hasn't been delivered yet to know what I get.
For me, I usually can locate those types of add-ons much cheaper than at time of order. This one has been unique because they keep finding flaws and issuing new part numbers for the new fixes and then pulling stock of the old ones... supply and demand.
This is supposedly coming back in stock tomorrow for $356.25 new customers save 5% with code NEW2020: https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2020-silverado-3500-transparent-trailer-camera-auxiliary-trailer-camera-models-with-cwm-pdm-uvn/84946379-p-92306103.html. Replaces 84876818, 84518122, 84477541, 84605536, 84580657, 84477539. I don't know much about this store other than I ordered another part from them over the weekend that is currently on its way to me, pretty quick to ship.
Got news that my truck shipped by rail last week headed to Wentzville, MO. GM chat gave me the container number the truck sits on, unfortunately there is no way I have found to track it... I just eagerly wait...
I'm a little nervous how incentives will change, my truck was built this week. I like the current incentives plus the extra Costco offer, would set me up pretty sweet. Gotta wait I am guessing three-ish weeks for the dealer to get the truck in.
