D-link DWP 157 Modem SMS Receiving Problem

D-Link provides excellent features in its Data card USB modems. If you are using prepaid or postpaid SIMs with D-Link USB modems, you can utilize all phone features such as calling, USSD, and SMS (messaging) service on your laptop and desktop PC. You can dial any phone number, receive any call, check data balance via USSD service, and send or receive messages.

If you are using a D-Link USB modem like the D-Link DWM 156 or D-Link DWP 157, both of which include SMS features, you can enjoy the SMS facility and receive messages without interruption. However, one day, the messages may suddenly stop coming. You might think there is a problem with the modem, but it’s likely a problem with the SIM card’s memory limit. To solve the SMS problem, you need to remove messages from the SIM storage.

Many times, when your SIM card’s memory is full, you will see an error or warning on the message icon Error-receiving-masseges. This means you need to remove some messages from the SIM card storage.
