Test command

The test command searches the Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) and returns a list of operators found.

The command is similar to +COPS with the exception that %COPS test command is considered a high priority search. This means that e.g. data transfer will be suspended, pagings lost, and registration is not maintained. In other words, the search will not be delayed because of any other procedure.

Response syntax:

%COPS: [(<stat>,long alphanumeric <oper>,short alphanumeric <oper>,numeric <oper>[,<AcT>])]

The test command parameters and their defined values are the following:

<oper>
String. Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) values. Only numeric string formats supported.
<stat>
0 – Unknown
1 – Available
2 – Current
3 – Forbidden
<AcT>
7 – E-UTRAN
9 – E-UTRAN (NB-S1 mode)

The following command example is used for a manual network search:

AT%COPS=?
%COPS: (2,"","","26201",7),(1,"","","26202",7)
OK
