Can meteor check if a device has SIM card

Is it possible to check
a device has SIM card in meteor

This has worked for me in the past.

var networkState = navigator.connection.type;

var states = {};
states[Connection.UNKNOWN]  = 'Unknown connection';
states[Connection.ETHERNET] = 'Ethernet connection';
states[Connection.WIFI]     = 'WiFi connection';
states[Connection.CELL_2G]  = 'Cell 2G connection';
states[Connection.CELL_3G]  = 'Cell 3G connection';
states[Connection.CELL_4G]  = 'Cell 4G connection';
states[Connection.CELL]     = 'Cell generic connection';
states[Connection.NONE]     = 'No network connection';

alert('Connection type: ' + states[networkState]);

If navigator.connection.type = CELL_2G or CELL_3G or CELL_4G or just CELL, then I’d imagine the device has a SIM card.

I can’t remember whether I needed to add a package though…

I don’t think that is a good solution since if the device is connected via WIFI, the condition will fail. Use this plugin, i guess if it throws an error, the device is lacking a simcard. (disclaimer - I’ve never used it, just googled for 2 seconds)
