SMS through USB cellular modem
I am trying to use a USB modem (Huawei E220) for sending and receiving SMS messages on my Chinese 7-inch "Vigo" tablet running 4.0ICS.
All the applications I've tried - Android Messenger, Handcent, GO SMS etc - send SMS messages successfully through this modem. But I can't receive incoming SMS messages, no matter which messaging app I've tried.
And, the modem works just fine for 3G data connections.
So is it even possible to receive incoming SMS messages into a tablet via a USB cell modem? If so, what am I missing? Are there hidden config settings in one of the apps, or the tablet itself, that I need to change?
Thanks if you can help
