Not able to send or receive SMS


#1

My Hologram sim is registered as Roaming on Verizon(US) network and it’s able to get and post data on websites. However, SMS doesn’t work. For SMS send I get Failed message. Below is the log-snippet:

00:23:19.194 -> FONA> s
00:23:43.775 -> Send to #+4477977xxxxx
00:23:47.034 -> Type out one-line message (140 char): test message at 4/27 1223

Any update would be appreciated. Is there anyway I can check whether, hologram SIM is able to send the SMS to the hologram-dashboard in the first place? That’ll allow me to confirm that SMS is being sent but the target SIM-card network is not able to accept the SMS message.

I am using Arduino SIM7000A shield and AT Commands as can be seen in the original post.

Have you tried it without the + at the front of the number? Some devices have trouble with that.


#4

Yes, I tried without + at the front of the number and that failed too.


#5

Ok and I’m assuming the "x"s aren’t there in the actual command?


#6

Yes, x are actually a phone number. I am wondering if I can put the sim card in a cellphone and it’ll allow me to camp onto LTE network.

After changing the network to AT&T I am able to send SMSs. Thanks for the support.
