Can I remind you about this firmware question and ask if there is any
I've been running for a long time now with 3G (AT_OPSYS=3,2) and find
that the modem will quite reliably crash if I am in a reasonably fast
moving train. Therefore I would guess that
- there is at least one specific problem in the modem firmware to do
with moving between 3G cells
- it would be really surprising if Option hadn't heard about and fixed
(I should also say, for balance, that 3G data also reliably works for
the 95% of the time when it isn't crashing!)
This particular problem can be avoided by using only 2G (AT_OPSYS=0,2),
but it's lovely to have the 3G speed, so 2G-only would be a bit of a
shame. And there are the other issues that Neil Brown mentioned (above
in this thread), that a new firmware might fix. Therefore it would be
great to know if we can look forward to a future modem firmware update.
