Reply To: Trouble registering with LTE-M network on Hologram

Home Forums Miscellaneous Trouble registering with LTE-M network on Hologram Reply To: Trouble registering with LTE-M network on Hologram


    Thanks for the tips here.
    I’ve also had trouble with a new Hologram SIM registering to the cell network with a Digi XB3M1.
    I had a working hologram SIM that connected straight away, and then would power off and swop in the new Hologram enabled SIM, and it would poll the cell tower and not work.
    I started trying about 2weeks ago, had to move on to a few other items, came back to it.
    Tried a few more times yesterday, added the tip above, and it worked, and ran overnight OK.
    I’m based 0.23.15 (but latest github.com/EnviroDIY/TinyGSM) and using DigiXBeeCellularTransparent.cpp
    I included and monitored the AT responses
    bool DigiXBeeCellularTransparent::extraModemSetup(void)
    added at the end
    and it sent back an ERROR
    but then the XB3M1 registered.
    Seems like its a magic recipe workaround of some sort, but no idea if this really works till I try registering my next sim.

    The code is here – search “+CREG”
    The first commented out “+CREG” is how I had it.
    Then I introduced an algorithm to only issue “+CREG” it if has been monitoring for 100 times for the next time I register a sim.

    The output is
