Unable to Receive Messages

Operating system name and version: Debian 9
Version of smsd: 3.1.15-2
Smsd installed from: sources
Name and model of a modem / phone: Huawei E3531
Interface: /dev/ttyUSB0

Hi, I wonder if someone can help me.

I am trying to set up smstools, and so far it seems I can send without problems, but i am having less success with receiving them - or at least messages sent to the E3531 do not appear in the 'incoming' folder.

(If i plug the E3531 in to a windows PC and go through the HiLink web interface, the received messages are listed - i assume this is an indication that the messages are being stored on internal memory rather than the SIM card.)

my smsd.conf is:

[GSM1]
 init =  AT+CPMS="SM"
 device = /dev/ttyUSB0
 incoming = yes
 baudrate = 19200
 memory_start = 0

Looking at the 'I cannot receive messages' section in the FAQ, changing the init string to AT+CPMS="ME" does not seem to have any effect, and changing the init string to "MT" as below
[GSM1]
 init =  AT+CPMS="MT"
 device = /dev/ttyUSB0
 incoming = yes
 baudrate = 19200
 memory_start = 0

gives the error in the log


What would be the best way to proceed?

Thanks in advance.

As you have tried with SM and ME memories, and both are empty even when there should be a message received, the device likely is broken or not compatible with standard AT commands.

Some time ago there have been two similar situations here:
[solved] Cannot receive SMS with Huawei E3131
[answered] not receiving sms

Possibly the situation sounds pretty similar, so look at those posts first.

One more thing, please check what is the firmware of your device:

- stop the smsd if it's running
- start smsd in communication mode: smsd -C GSM1
- press enter and give a command: AT^FHVER

What is the response?

Thanks for your help with this Keke, it is much appreciated.

Entering AT^FHVER gives



I will start to work my way through the other forum threads you suggested now.

So, using a terminal connection smsd -C GSM1

if I enter AT+CPMS? it returns


then if i send a message to the E3531, and AT+CPMS? again it returns


and then immediately afterwards entering AT+CPMS? again it returns


Is it interesting that "SM" only appears in the returned string, on the first attempt before the message is received by the stick?

I believe I have had a bit of a break through

using these settings in smsd.conf i can send and receive messages with the E3531

GSM1]
 init = AT+CPMS="SM";+CNMI=2,0,0,2,1
 device = /dev/ttyUSB0
 incoming = yes
 baudrate = 19200
 memory_start = 0
 report_device_details = yes
 report = yes
 hangup_incoming_call = yes

It seems the issue was with the CNMI mode. It seems as default the E3531 is set to 2,1,2,2,0 (or my one was at least).
