This is getting off topic now :)

I came into this discussion because I want to check the version of the gsm 
firmware, to see if it needs to be upgraded.
The wiki has a page on doing this via FSO with dbus [1].  Is there a different 
method available ?

The reason I wanted to do this is to see if there is a bug dealing with NITZ 
that may have been resolved, but I am not sure at what level in the stack it 

According to [2] the AT+CTZU command is supported.
To do this I need to talk to the modem, but nothing is being returned ?
I have tried chat [3] and cu [4] without success.  Trying cu, I typed
and get no response.

Is this a Calypso firmware bug as described by Alex [5] ?
