@sturman Just make sure, if you're wanting to use GPRS data, that you configure the correct APN in the device.

 

APN name: vodafone

Username and password are blank.

I now have the Wavecom modem running with SIM installed and have connected to it via a basic terminal program. I am not sure how I can check the APN details, but the following command (network registration):

 

AT+COPS=?

 

gives the response:


+COPS: (2,"vodafone NZ","vodafone N","53001"),(3,"","","53024")

 

so it seems to be connected to the vodafone network, but I am not sure whether the settings are correct. To test registration status, I have used the command:

 

AT+CREG?

 

which gave the response:

 

+CREG: 0,1

 

which appears to mean 'registered, home network'.

 

Please can you confirm that this appears to be OK (there is nothing else I need to check)? If so, my next task is to work out why it rings once and goes silent (there should be squeaks and sqawks of data going back and forth, like the old fashioned phone modems).

 

Thanks,

Andy

That looks fine to me.

 

I am thinking maybe this device uses Circuit Switched Data?

 

If so this needs to be provisioned on our end. And can only be done On Account (Postpay) not Prepay.
