I have both an E303 and E3531 and I get the same response when sms is sent.

Ignoring incoming SMS info as not a Status Report in SR memory

both can send sms ok just struggle to receive? E303 used to work but since upgrading my Rpi to Buster and I assume the latest version of Gammu 1.40.0, no dice!!!!

I managed to get them both to work with python-gsmmodem.

Any suggestions?

I also have the same problem with gammu 1.40.0 and Huawei E5331 did you find a work around?

Hi. I spent a lot of time trying to run gammu with my Huawei E3531. Finally I switched to python-gsmmodem and created my own script. The problem is gammu is no longer maintained by the developer and looks for a new maintainer.

If you want to switch to python-gsmmodem you need to use the last python-gsmmodem version (called python-gsmmodem-new), the faucamp's version is no longer maintained and out of date. In this repository you have some exemples and one of them is to read sms.

The python exemple is just an exemple, it's incomplete. It does not read sms in the memory (if you receive a sms before running the script). And it does not concatenate multi parts sms (it will print unordered parts).
Also, as your script is running in live to read sms, you cannot send sms with another script because the dongle is busy.

So I created a complete script for that. It's quite simple but it concats big sms, reads sms in memory regularly and it starts a daemon that communicate with another script to send a sms.

Here is the GIST :

Enjoy and let me know in the gist comments if you have any issue

Thanks Steve, even though i moved on without gammu after i got frustrated i will definitely look into that python code and use it for future projects.

Thanks again

@ear9mrn I would suggest you provide a debug log so anyone interested in looking into the issue can get an idea of what might be causing the problem.
