I have a common problem (already posted from someone else) in accessing the 5210 phonebook (phone firmware is v5.20 12-08-02 NSM-5).
When I try reading (via irda), for example, the 3rd entry (or any other entry, one or many at a time) from SIM memory, I get:
+CPBR=(1,200),20,8 // just to show you: 20 max chars for number and only 8 max for the name??
+CPBR: 3,"+390123456789",145," C O M P A Q H D E<CR>+39"
Here are my two quests:
1 - Why the name field has a space before each character (the '<CR>' represents a carrige return char)? The real name showed on the phone display is "COMPAQ HDESK", no spaces.
2 - Why the name is getting truncated and the truncated characters are replaced by the characters from the phone number ? i.e why the wrap around occurs?
ANY other +CSCS terminal setting leads me to the same results.
It is not a thing that doens't work to me, an error, or something I'm doing wrong, but a targeted 5210 phone problem!
ONLY the 5210 model gives me these problems: tried with FIVE different Nokia models, 3 Ericsson models, 1 Siemens model, 4 Panasonic models... and had no problems with the output format of the entry-name!!
If Nokia claims to have built-in a modem in a phone, hope you don't have to verify all -standard- AT commands (because AT+CPBR is a basic command, working on any phone-modem) before buying it...
So, Nokia guys, since ther is no support/SDK for a "cheap" 200 euro phone like 5210, can you please tell me at least if it's a firmware bug, and if so, what version solves this problem (is there a v5.40 firmware out there?), so I can go to a service center to upgrade my phone and write this in my PocketPC application About box?
Thank you in advance for the attention youl'd like to pay to my problem.
