I'm running minicom on Ubuntu 10.04 with a Huawei e220 and an AT&T SIM card. As directed by http://bit.ly/16ODGG, I was able to send an SMS to myself and several other phones across carriers.
device: /dev/ttyUSB0 bps: 115200 8N1 hardware: No software: Yes
The next step I would like to do is to be able to dial out. However, when I attempt to do so, via
I will get a
NO CARRIER output. I've been Google-ing this error, and it seems the most consistent answer is for me to use
pppconfig to dial out - but from my understanding, this will utilize the data connection on my phone, and make the phone call via the internet, and not voice, as per the minutes plan of my phone company.
Is there a way I can make the call over voice?
