weird though .. as I never experienced buzz in my calls (although I
have to admit I didn't make more than 10 calls max uptill now)

weird again ... I had major echo issues (for the party calling me that
is), but using %N0187 solved this in one go (I never tried the other at
commands mentioned in another mail that should solve/minimize echo
issues). Using alsa states influenced echo, but only because you in fact
decrease the volume of the calling party. Even more strange is that this
at-command doesn't seem an accepted solution but people try to stop echo
in one or two at-commands at the modem initialization time, and that
doesn't seem to work but still it continues to be the choosen path. I
don't care that this at-command gets send on every call, as long as it
eliminates echo. For me this is the definitive solution.
