Hi,
I bought a Connect Shield and have been working with it for a few months now. I've noticed that it usually outputs its "SYSSTART" message within a few seconds of powering it up, but occasionally it takes much longer, minutes sometimes. Any idea what causes that to happen ?

Also, regarding the schematic that's included in "connect_shield_ug_v02.pdf": Pages 16 and 17 of the UG are pages 1 and 2 of the schematic, but the schematic indicates that there are actually 3 pages. i.e. the 2 pages are labeled Sheet 1/3 and Sheet 2/3. Also, the RXD1 and TXD1 pins of the modem are connected to "RXD1/[3]" and "TXD1/[3]" respectively, seeming to reference the 3rd page.

Would you know where I can find the missing 3rd page of the schematic ? Maybe there's a later version of the PDF ?

Thanks,

Jack

I should have added above - when it takes longer than usual to output its "SYSSTART" message, it becomes very unresponsive to AT commands.
