I tried to execute all the commands even if the context proposed in Settings > Cellular Network > Access Points (the one you see in the post I published at the beginning of the thread) does not resemble in any way the APN of my operator (the one reported on the site is mobile.vodafone.it) and, in fact, once launched the command nmcli d connect quectelqmi_0 I get the following error: Error: Connection activation failed: (25) No carrier could be established.
I also tried rescanning the operators with ofonoctl operators, but the error keeps showing up.
Ok I ran the deactivate all script again and then did nmcli n off followed by nmcli n on (note if you are using SSH via network you will lose the connection so best do this second step from the phone’s terminal). May be worth noting I ran all of the above sudo.
Hi all. Today I flashed the latest dev image once again and the system finally shown an error message related to the 4G issue.
Every five minutes or so, in fact, it pops up a notification with the following error: “Modem (quectelqmi_0) - The modem shows no carrier”.
Got the same issue, tried to manually configure the file /var/lib/ofono/<card_number>/gprs with correct apn, but gprs still doesn’t work and the settings → cellular info → SIM Card displays again the “defaul-lte” connection.
I can’t accept the idea that after 20 years of distro/DE battles we are still in the same situation having a user interface like phosh that is totally out of time but working properly for the essential stuffs a phone have to do, and a UI like KDE/plasma, modern and fascinating, but useless if you need gprs working. Specifically networkmanager works flawlessly, ofono doesn’t. Moreover there’s not a clear way to work on it.
In my case phone calls and SMS are working out of the box, after SIM is unlocked. Is there anyone able to configure gprs in ofono?
If you need to use gprs the only way is to install phosh version, I can’t still figure out why in plasma-mobile the gprs connection point to that default-lte APN, and creating a new conf file (as explained in my last post), with correct gprs parameters, is totally useless.
Finally, after the latest update of the Manjaro Plasma Mobile image that replaces Ofono with NetworkManager (if I understand correctly), the mobile data network has started to work perfectly and the APN setting has become smooth as in Phosh.
