I will consider flashing them when/or if that includes getting the mms text to work.

I don't care much about MMS but I do care about excessive modem power consumption and heat and unreliable performance waking from sleep--particularly what appears to be deep sleep. As others have reported, the modem occasionally crashes and becomes undetectable and inaccessible via mmcli or "sudo systemctl enable ModemManager.service" for unknown reasons, requiring a Pinephone reset.

Finally, my phone reports off--network or otherwise strong but unusable 4G signals, which give the false impression that the phone is usable when it is not. I don't know if my old and original .001 modem firmware might be responsible for the false signal annunciations and values but some release note entries indicate that work has been done on power management and sleep mode compatibility.

So yeah, I'm motivated to try new firmware ASAP and, hopefully, get a daily driver out of it!
