7 years ago
In this article I will tell about the subjective feelings from samsung galaxy s 2 and about that as I could receive it for testing from the Samsung company.

8 years, 4 months ago
Thanks to the author of a topic Account check Kiyevstar of the modem in Linux which helped me to understand the principle of operation of modems and mode of work with them in Linux. I needed to solve a problem of display of the signal level, check of balance, account replenishment with use 3zh the modem. But as there was no wish to put on home machines pkhp for the sake of such trifle to me, decided to rewrite a script under himself on Python which is in any a desktop Linux from a box.

This script will work at any modems / phones which support USSD without coding PDU.
