Latest firmware for PinePhone modem!
#71
for me, 01.003.01.003 and 01.002.01.002 are equally problematic. i'm on 01.003.01.003 at a moment. both disconnect mobile internet after some time and reconnect. time is random but maybe from a hour to a day. i see it by ip numbers because it changes often. some cases modemmanager locks in a way, it requires deeper fixes.

eg25 modem chip is designed for iot-devices and similar, it would be expected to have some reliability. although pinephone board may have some issues as well.

It may be I'm not seeing a problem with the modem because I don't use mobile internet, all I use the Pinephone for is phone calls and as a portable Linux computer like a tiny laptop. (I have the mobile internet feature disabled in the settings.) For internet access I use wi-fi which has been working perfectly well aside from being limited to the 2.4GHz band.

Except for an occasional problem with some MMS plugging the cache,

My only problem I have noticed in recent months has been carrier caused.

But then I do only turn on the data when I want to use it, then turn it off when I am done. *(Mostly just testing for function)

All of my Pine phones still have the factory shipped firmware.

I've been using LTE mobile Internet and I have experienced no problems. For that matter, nearly all my voice calls have been VoLTE since I subscribed to US Mobile (T-Mobile white SIM card). I use wifi far more often than mobile Internet but I have been using mobile too.

i am NOT responsible for any damage you do for anything or anyone based on this information, either are NOT developers, like biktorgj. that damage includes thermonuclear war with biological agents and bricking the modem chip!! 

i decided to install this firmware https://github.com/Biktorgj/pinephone_mo.../tag/0.4.0 . it has same intermittent mobile data internet disconnects like others (01.002.01.002 and 01.003.01.003).

getting back was troublesome, command "adb reboot edl" did not work in that yocto, my guess is adb's arm64 compilement has some issues, not necessarily yocto. i needed to use shortcircuiting. however, i was able to get back.
