wammu – Connecting to Huawei E160 modem

November 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Needed to be able to send messages to check account balance from modem. The alternative was to remove sim card from modem, insert to a phone, check credit or buy data bundle, then insert back to modem. Just too much work.

Wammu. Installed it using synaptic. wammu version on debian squeeze is 0.33.

Configuration settings that worked for me were.

less ~/.gammurc
connection = AT
synchronizetime = yes
logformat = errors
logfile = /home/user/gammu.log
port = /dev/ttyUSB0
name = Huawei E160

I also added the user to uucp and dailout groups.

NB. You can not connect to the modem if it is also connected to the Net.
