PLS8-E AT+CGDCONT '+CME ERROR: operation temporary not allowed' | Thales IoT Developer Community

March 25, 2020 - 5:05pm, 1356 views

I have two idential hardware devices with differing hardware revisions of PLS8-E.

The working one is:

    ATI1

    Cinterion
    PLS8-E
    REVISION 03.017
    A-REVISION 01.000.09

The non-working one is:

    ATI1

    Cinterion
    PLS8-E
    REVISION 04.004
    A-REVISION 01.000.11

The latter is not able to connect to the APN:

    --> Sending: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","********"
    AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","********"
    +CME ERROR: operation temporary not allowed

 Only sometimes after a manual reset (AT+CFUN=1,1) is it able to do so (but not always).

What has changed between the two revisions ?

Do I need to initialize the newer revision differently ?

More information needed ?
