Huawei E173 3G Dongle GSM calls

Thu Dec 13, 2018 8:01 am

I have a Huawei E173 3G dongle up and working fine and is able to connect 3G internet via sakis3G and UMTSKeeper, able to send and receive SMS.

However, the AT command (ATD) for dialing another phone number keeps giving me ERROR, I've tried ATD****, ATD*****; ATDT****, where all gives me the same ERROR

This is my output for ATI:

Code: Select all

ATI                                                                             
Manufacturer: huawei                                                            
Model: E173                                                                     
Revision: 21.015.03.04.55                                                       
IMEI:                                                           
+GCAP: +CGSM,+DS,+ES
I tried to call the 3G dongle sim card and I am able to pick up via minicom with ATA command.
Just that the 3G dongle couldn't initiate dial with ATD command.

Anybody know what could be the problem?

To be honest I think you would do better on a mobile site as it’s not an issue with the Pi and this is a Raspberry Pi forum :)

Saying that, you may need to unlock the unit for voice https://miapple.me/unlocking-huawei-e17 ... functions/
