I wonder whether I´m allowed to ask ask a rather general question in this forum too
I specifically chose the section “other distributions” and here “technology” to be as general as possible.
Well, I´ll give it a shot. I hope you dear folks won´t mind.
As I have recently acquired a smartphone (Samsung / android) I also got a SIM card together with it. I activated it and got the phone finally working.
As some of you may know (I´ve mentioned it quite a few times I think ) I don´t have a router/DSL-modem but a Huawei 4G web-stick/dongle to access the internet from my Linux PC.
This 4G stick also has a SIM card inserted in it, of course with a different phone number. So it accesses the net via a mobile network.
Out of curiosity I tried to call the 4G stick (which had an internet connection established at the time) from the smartphone.
Well, of course I knew I couldn´t make a call to the stick as it has no means for making traditional voice calls like a microphone or a loudspeaker.
Well, to the best of my recollection I got a “busy” tone on my smartphone.
I wonder: is this behaviour to be expected
After all I can send SMS messages to the stick and it receives them without fail.
Many thanks and many greetings.
