Operating system name and version: WindowsXP EN SP3, cygwin
Version of smsd: 3.1.14
Smsd installed from: sources
Name and model of a modem / phone: Huawei K3765, Vodafone Modem
Interface: USB

Hi,
I'm using smstools for testing purposes on my WinXP laptop, I've used it since 2003 or so :) The current installation of cygwin with smstools 3.1.14 works at least for Nokia 6230i so I'm sure it works.

Now I have Huawei K3765 Vodafone Modem which works only for sending but does not receive any message. I tried this modem in my WinXP laptop as well as in desktop computer with Ubuntu 10.10 with smstools 3.1.X (not sure about the last number). Both of these installations were able to send but not receive a message.

Here is a part of my smsd.conf related to the Huawei modem.



Log file here. Sorry for the length, I wanted to keep everything important. There's a start of smsd, sending message and lines saying no messages received.




I searched this forum many times finding couple of hints for Huawei modems, spent with that couple of hours and now giving up and need to ask. Am I missing any important setting? Any hints what to do?

Thanks a lot!
Michal

It looks like you just do not have anything to receive.

In the log, support for reading is tested once:

Reading is supported, but the SIM is empty: "SM",0,20.

You could try to send a message to the modem's own number. Also use Report: yes header, so you can see how status reports are received.

Hi Keke,
thanks for your quick reply. I sent couple of testing messages to that SIM card and none of them was received by smsd (none appeared in /incoming or in log) so I thought they're still on the SIM card. Now I at least know what this line means, thanks for that :)
<- +CPMS: "SM",0,20,"SM",0,20,"SR",0,0 OK

Before you posted your reply I restarted the smsd with this setting:
report_device_details = yes

And got this output. It seems to me there might be other types of storage for incoming messages, according to this:
2010-12-20 14:54:42,7, DEV4: <- +CPMS: ("ME","MT","SM","SR"),("ME","MT","SM","SR"),("ME","MT","SM","SR")
OK

Doesn't make sense to me, I can just guess that it can store messages on SM (SIM) but that's all. Thanks for any hint.

I also send one more testing message to the SIM from my mobile phone when smsd was running, got a status report: delivered, but it didn't appear in the logfile nor in the /incoming folder.

Update: I mentioned I made it to send a message from Ubuntu, which is not true (yet). I made it to connect to the internet on Ubuntu (to test if Ubuntu is able to communicate with it) and now I'm testing it with WinXP. After that I'll move back to Ubuntu. This doesn't change the topic/problem but I want to make it clear that the above information in first post is not completely correct.

Try with a modem setting:

init2 = AT+CPMS="ME","ME","ME"

Man, thanks a lot!
That's the secret ingredient I was looking for.

I know that good old Siemens phones were initialized with this
init = AT+CPMS="MT","MT","MT"
but didn't get the idea to try ME instead.

Once again, thank you!

I'll post an update if it works with Ubuntu.

I have an update, not from Ubuntu but from FreeBSD 8.2-BETA1. Good news - it works! :) It can receive and send SMS messages.

I used the same configuration like on my WinXP box:


There're two things I'm curious about. The modem is represented as four devices in /dev: cuaU0.0, cuaU0.1, cuaU0.2, cuaU0.3 and two of them works (listen to AT commands and can send/receive messanges) - cuaU0.0 and cuaU0.3.

The second thing - unlike on my WinXP box, here on FreeBSD smsd is stuck in a loop for some reason... Do you have an idea why this is happening? I mean the list of messages: "Trying to get stored message XX"

The driver provides interfaces for controlling and for networking. Just use the one which works and does not provide lot of unexpected input. On Windows it is named as 3G PC UI Interface.

With default check_memory_method use:

memory_start = 0

or use:

check_memory_method = 31

...or, as before, use:

check_memory_method = 2

Keke, thanks again,
my fault, I forgot to use check_memory_method. I thought I copied all the settings from my XP box but in fact didn't.

This thread can be considered answered/solved. Many thanks!
