My standard reply for such modems is to talk to your vendor and demand
the firmware to be fixed.  If this isn't possible, then please perform
these steps:


It seriously might be easier to get another modem than trying to work
around such nasty bugs in the modem firmware.  You will never be able to
hit any sort of power consumption targets with CLCC polling anyway.
Such behavior from the modem firmware is not acceptable, even the old
Calypso modem in the Freerunner was better here.

You can always try ignoring CME ERROR 100 and re-try the CLCC poll.
Maybe the modem is in a transitional period (e.g. call being released)
and it can't answer the CLCC properly.  In other words, there's a bug
related to timing of call state changes & CLCC implementation in the
modem firmware.
