Not sure to understand what you mean by unsolicited responses from the 
modem. The framework sends a signal 
(org.freesmartphone.GSM.Network.Status), following the GSM specs. Do you 
mean that under the hood, the framework does polling, because the modem 
does not have this kind of unsollicited signal?
