What is the purpose of a "Sim" other than to retain small pieces of data in different channels,,it seems the credit is retained at the server end by the provider who filters your useage and charges you accordingly for a long while i thought the credit was held on the sim itself ,,this is not the case and if you could swap sim;s quickly and  intervene at the correct time of the "handshake" you would have  a free subscription or at least be able to change provider.---is this correct??

This appears to be a good hint.

 Maybe this is because we don't power off the modem completely?

Well, then it should handle all /dev/ttyHS ports in the same way.
They are all to communicate with the modem.
Or because it is in use (opened)?

Ah, please try:

sleep 1000 </dev/ttyHS0    # this is the diagnostics ports

then suspend and see if ttyHS0 also remains registered.
