Set command

The set command sets locked bands and bitmasks to limit supported bands.

Supported bands are masked with permanent and runtime masks. A logical AND operation is performed to %XBANDLOCK commands. If a permanent or runtime mask has been given, it is required that the second mask has at least one band in common with the first mask. Otherwise, the command returns ERROR. The command returns ERROR at an attempt to disable all supported bands.

Permanent mask is stored to Non-volatile Memory (NVM) approximately every 48 hours and when the modem is powered off with the +CFUN=0 command.

Note: Set band lock before activating modem with +CFUN.
