Got it working on T-Mobile also. I went to a T-Mobile store and they signed me up for an Even More Plus Blackberry Unlimited plan (or something like that - my receipt says “EMPlus BBery & BIS VB”). Took a little digging through their computer until they found it. This is supposed to be unlimited data, no texting/SMS/MMS/voice. I’m paying $40/month with no contract (+$35 setup fee)… it’s auto-billed to my card, but I can call and cancel a few days before any billing cycle. Initially they told me it was going to be $50/month, but when they put the order in it ended up being $40 for some reason. They also gave me a SIM card for free.
So far it’s working great. Only difference is the APN; now the command is:
Other than that, cloverm’s example works fine (along with the info in Enhanced AT Reference Manual).
One caveat with this module and the related Sparkfun eval board - you will most likely need to use an external power supply. The ADH8066 can draw up to 2A in 600us pulses every 4.6ms (when the PA is operating), which is much higher than most USB ports can realistically source. Average operating current (while transmitting continuously) should be something like 600mA max, but the small amount of capacitance on the Sparkfun eval board isn’t nearly enough to source the large current pulses.
Just figured it out… for AT&T, you need to do this:
then everything else works great.
What provider/rate plan were you using?
Has anyone gotten this to work on AT&T? I put the SIM from my iphone into this, and I get as far as the at+aipa=1 command, but then I keep getting “ERROR: 301”. Maybe AT&T knows this thing isn’t an iphone so they’re refusing to give me an IP.
Here’s the transcript of what I’ve tried so far:
No public wish lists :(
