Modem Manager Poll

Hi! I am running the 4.23 release on a PinePhone Beta. On Verizon. The modem manager sends sms reliably, but rarely receives sms. Is this normal? Clues that might be relevant include the fact that the modem number changes (from 0 to 24) on a random basis, reassigning on each boot. I see many reports of similar issues, but no reports that sms is functioning normally. Kindly respond with your modem manager and SpaceBar experience…

I have a great many friends and acquaintances who would migrate off their iPhones if linux sms worked reliably, but alas, I cannot report that it does. Yet…

Hello,

Release of what? Plasma Mobile provided by Manjaro is 5.27.4 and the kernel is 6.1 …
When did you last updated or did you tried one of the new images?

If you are unhappy with Plasma Mobile you can always flash Phosh (more reliable in all regards) and use that instead.
Anyway, i can’t say that receiving SMS was one of the issues i encountered.

You can download newer images from Manjaro Development Pinephone Images · GitHub or see the latest announcements here on the forum. Make sure you do not download the image for PinePhone Pro.

Title says poll but there is no poll …

The April 2023 release of Plasma Mobile (pulled off github and installed about a week ago).

Thank you for the suggestion - I will take a look at Phosh. Frankly, I can’t tell if I’m unhappy with Plasma Mobile or not, because I can’t tell where the problem is coming from and if it is unique to me. Thus the Poll (and thank you for responding).

Lol, that’s because I didn’t realize we could create an actual poll. Nice.

Same issue with phosh. I cannot get MMGUI to run on either plasma or phosh. I am beginning to suspect that this is an issue with the verizon interface… Or my phone. Don’t know where to begin to debug…

Time for an X Prize? $250.00 to anyone who can restore sms connectivity for PinePhone to Verizon on Plasma? Nobody is going to use any of this without basic functionality…

I wonder if you saw this topic Verizon (US) in-coming texts

Yes. Based on the fact that I get occasional SMS and the MMCLI list command indicates that there is nothing there, I had assumed that the issue is different.

However, giving Verizon a call can’t hurt. I’ll report back on how that goes…
