ATI4 This command displays the modem manufacturer.
Using these commands enables you to check the hardware connection between the phone and PC. If you receive positive messages (OK), the connection is working properly.
Another way you can use HyperTerminal is to check if you can connect with either Packet or Circuit Data:
ATD (plus Number of ISP) This command will show you if the unit can make a Circuit Data call.
ATDS=2 This command will show you if the unit can make a Packet Data call.
Using this AT command can determine if you can connect to the ISP or the packet data network successfully. If you cannot connect, please contact your phone service provider to determine if your phone has been provisioned correctly.
