I can not receive SMS on raspberry pi with smstools 3 and playsms

(Alex Vortex) #1


I install on raspberry pi 2 model B, sms tools 3 and playsms 1.4
I use a gsm modem from Vodafone (Huawei K3520)

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# sudo lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 12d1:1001 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E169/E620/E800 HS DPA Modem
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I followed the tutorial below

I am new to gsm modem and my linux skills are not very high.
I can send SMS with no problem but I can not receive.

Please any step by step guide (for newbie) will be apreciated.

I found this and now I can receive sms


I added
init=AT+CPMS=“ME”,“ME”,“ME” in smsd.conf

have you enabled receive sms on sms server tools?

incoming = no/yes/high or 0/1/2
Default value: no.
Specifies if the program should read incoming SM from this modem. “Yes” or “1” means that smsd receives with less priority. The value “high” or “2” means that smsd receives with high priority. “No” or “0” means that smsd does not receive messages.

Thanks Andre, as I wrote before I managed to solve myself after some googleing
