FONA FIRST START- GPRS DOES NOT TURN ON

by ghuser on Wed Sep 13, 2017 12:46 pm

It always happens, that the first time in 10 hours, if i attempt to turn on the GPRS, the fona does switch on, but then the GPRS
is not turned on. (i.e. Red blinks slowly).

<<Suppose i turn on Fona now and gprs has started correctly. I turn it off. Then, several hours later (>=10 hours) , i turn it on again, then Fona does switch on but GPRS is not enabled. (i.e. Red blinks slowly). >>

(Tried with 3 different networks all having full support for 2G)
However, if just after i first turned on the Fona (few minutes or few hours afterwards), i turn it off and then turn it on again, the fona does switch on correctly and GPRS is also activated correctly.
Anyone encountered this.

Yes, I just added a loop. I try to connect several times before I give up and wait for longer time. I do not know why sometimes it fails to connect.
