Hello EA community,
First of all thank you for the effort and time you sacrifice to make others’ lifes easier :smiley:
As you know (almost, many of you) that 2G/GSM networks are or will be removed/disabled in many countries,. Now I’m working on some apps that are based on TCP protocol to communicate using SIM5300EA module. in the documentation it is mentioned that TCP is based on GPRS connection. So my question is : If I use this module (in TCP mode) in a place where 2G network is disabled, would it work?
Same question for SMS !

Thank you for you replies

Hello and Welcome,
SIM5300EA is a 3G/2G module. It switches to whichever is available in that area.
Same commands for TCP and SMS will work for 3G or 2G network.
