Balena Fin v1.1 Cellular SMS


Is it possible to send SMS with a mPCIe cellular modem connected?

Hey there! I believe that it should be possible, but I haven’t done it myself. Let me check with my colleagues just in case

I can confirm that this should fine by installing and using mmcli. For example:

mmcli -m 0 --messaging-create-sms="text='Hello world',number='+1234567890'"

Let us know if you run into any issues!

Would receive work as well?

That should work as well. You can do mmcli -m 0 --messaging-list-sms, and there might also be a way to listen on a bus signal.
