I have PHS8-US and PLS8-X modem. I want to get service provider name. Is there any AT command supported for these modem? If not then how we can get service provider name?
You can get the current operator name with AT+COPS? command. To get the SIM card issuer you can read the IMSI number with AT+CIMI command.
Is there any way to read Service Provider Name from SIM memory? With command AT+CRSM?
at least for the PLS8 the vendor-specific AT^SIND="eons",1 command should be an easier way to
obtain this information via +CIEV: "eons" URCs.
Thie SIND command is also available for PHS8. It would probably be possible with CRSM but SIND is much simpler.
Can you please provide some example for reading Service Provider name by CRSM.

I've tested this with two SIM cards - for one of them I've read the service provider name and for the other there was nothing saved. I've got the same result with SIND command.
It depends on the operator if the name is stored on a SIM card or not. But you will always read the Mobile Country Code and Mobile Network Code from IMSI that you can get with AT+CIMI command.
