I bought a prepaid regular SIM card yesterday in Montreal (438-345-xxxx). The purpose was to put it in a GSM SMS controller I got.
I'm having problem to configure it to send or receive SMS and the user manual isn't really helpful.
First, I'm not sure what is the format I have to use for the modem to dial correctly:
Also, I have to choose between these bands: PGSM, DCS, PCS, EGSM_DCS, GMS_850PCS, and default (which I don't know what it refers to). Looking at it on internet just confused me more.
There are many others fields with no explication in the documentation:
-Pin code (don't know what code it's refering to)
-puk code (not sure it would really help)
-smsc number (don't know if it refers to the sim card # or the Koodo service center number, and again, which format the SIM card expect)
-Country code (again, +1 or 1)
The SIM card is tagged "prepaid". What is different with that card compared with one that goes with a monthly plan?
Any help would be useful.
Thank you very much.
