Re: Access Connection SMS Menu disappeared!!!!

2010-10-09, 10:14 AM

Hi hookins 

 

Well I took the two additional entries out. No change or success so far.

When I connect to the Internet over the Broadband Access the Providername changes from Vodafone to O2 Germany... the logo remains Vodafone.

I guess the logo is bound to the "106" ID in the XML file.

 

More suggestions ? How can I force the SMSApplication to work ?

I also see in the drivers section of the Access Connections page that the device driver you have is specific to Vodafone/Cingular which could explain the service provider showing as it does. Perhaps try one of the other sierra drivers. I see yours is slightly outdated and AC does suggest you update all your drivers as a prerequisite may have to remove the Sierra drivers you have in device manager and reload the new ones.

Is this a PCI card as this article suggests? http://www.sierrawireless.com/Newsroom/newsreleases/2006/05-08_sierra_wireless_introduces_next_generation_hsdpa_embedded_module.aspx

 

Maybe the SMS application in AC does not work with cards other than motherboard built in devices as the Gobi is.

I have not found a way to force the app to run. You will see in task manager if you run the app manually from the install directory that the app runs for a second or two and then shuts down. It can only be run through AC unfortunately or at least as I can see so far.

Perhaps another stab in the dark and something of a long shot is to add the mcnc's of operators that are somewhat associated with your setup. You say the access fails over to D1 if out of range, and the card is adamant that it's a Vodafone device, try add those:
262001 and 262002
Worth a shot I guess.

Whether I install the last available driver von Lenovo's page or the last available package vom Sierra with a newer driver Access Connection recognizes the device and lets me connect to my ISP. The SMS feature remains hidden with both drivers.

The SMS Feature included with the generic Sierra package works in the Watcher Application.

Unfortunately the Sierra Watcher Application and Access Connections don't like each other pretty well.

 

As I said, card works fine with AC 5.72 on the 2.0.9.0 Drivers Version from Lenovo to connect.

 

What Driver Version do you have employed ?

 

Seems MC 8775 is not supported by AC's new SMS feature.

I have a Gobi 2000 device so drivers will be very different.

Did you try adding the other two mcnc's as I suggested? 262001 and 262002 for D1 and Vodafone?

No chance, the D1 MCNC and Vodafone MCNC didn't change anything.

Despite that, I would have the Vodafone ID two times in the  XML and mix things up.

The card works, Logo and Profile Settings are applied but the SMS App doesn't start.

 

A shame Lenovo didn't publish for which devices the SMS Support was reprogrammed in AC 5.72

 

Thx for your efforts.

I found an entry in Acces Con. Help:

 

 

To open the SMS Message box, please follow these steps:

1. Make sure that your Mobile Broadband device is Qualcomm Gobi 2000 (TM) HS-USB Mobile with sim card attached.

2. In Access Connections main window, go to Tools tab and click on SMS icon or Right click ACtray (Windows XP and Vista) or Access Connections Gauge (Windows 7) and choose Launch SMS 

Note: SMS Message box is not supported with F3507g, F3607gw, Qualcomm HS-USB, and Sierra Wireless EVDO and HSDPA Network Adapters.

 

Therefore, the SMS feature is not supported with F3507g, F3607gw, Qualcomm HS-USB, and Sierra Wireless EVDO and HSDPA Network Adapters. :smileysad:

You first shoukd make sure, that your broadband card support sms.

 

1. Update to latest drivers cards.

2. Update to AC 5.72

3. Insert sim

4. Connect to broadband network via AC

5. Sent a text message (SMS) to the simcard.

a) if you see the message that a SMS arrived, then the broadband card supports textmessages in gerneral

b) if not, your broadband card doesnt support sms or the sim is not allowed to receive a text message...

I have found another option you may wish to try. Its not Access Connections but it works. Its called Vodafone Mobile Broadband. After a bit of tweaking (less than 10 minutes) I got my Cell C sim running on this Vodafone software and viewing SMSs. I see that it should support SMS for your Sierra Wireless card. Only testing will prove this for sure or not.

 

It shows in this PDF Readme on page 7 that the device is supported: http://bit.ly/9xjlJn

 

You can grab the app here: http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=67199&t=4&i=1

 

Instructions:

 

Install the software simply using all the defaults. You can choose any connection in the dropdown list. It doesn't matter as you will be changing this later and you just need something there to complete the installation.

 

When you run the application it will say your sim card is not recognised. It doesnt matter. Close the application.

 

Go to the install directory: C:\Program Files\Vodafone\Vodafone Mobile Broadband\Opco

 

You will see loads of network settings. Scroll down and you will find "26202 Germany". Copy it and name it "26207 Germany". Go into your new 26207 directory and rename everything you see as 26202 to 26207. I changed my settings under Prepay as well. I figured it can't hurt.

 

You then need to go into the XML files and change all the 26202s to 26207. Very important is the 26207.XML. At the same time change all the Vodafone.de entries to O2.

 

Once you are sure you have renamed and reconfigured all the files, go back to the root of Opco where all the network settings are and scroll to the bottom. You will see another file Opcos.XML. Edit that file. Scroll down and find the 26202 Germany entry. Copy that entry and paste it beneath it. Make sure its alignment is correct and the same as the others. Edit the 26202 to 26207 and rename the Vodafone entries to O2

 

Save the files and reopen the application. It should now prompt you that your selected network is not available but would you like to use the settings for your installed O2 sim card. Select yes. This should then show your network and offer you the option to Connect. At this time my SMS messages popped up and offered me the chance to Delete or Reply or open the SMS application. You should now also be able to open SMSs on your desktop shortcut as well as the small SMS link on the open application and in the system tray icon.

 

You should still be able to keep your connection through Lenovo Access Connections and just check your SMSs through the Vodafone app.

 

Please let me know how this works for you or if you continue to have trouble with this. I really hope this helps you.

 

Cheers
