LB2120 How to SMS a command eg #11#


LB2120 How to SMS a command eg #11#

Is there a way to sent an SMS using a special code ? My SIM provider asks for an SMS to be sent to #11# to get a reply back on the amount of data left on the plan. When I try and enter #11# the LB2120 says it's an invalid number.

Don't really want to take SIM out and put it in a phone to check data usage.

I have a 365 day prepaid SIM that I use as a backup so the monthly measurements in the device aren't much use.

Hi Barry,


Good day!


Welcome to NETGEAR Community!


First of all, we do apologize for the inconvenience of not getting back to you immediately due to the back log in the system. 

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need further assistance. 


Unfortunately, you need to check it via phone since the device cannot send a text message.

What does the Messaging selection on the left side do then?  If you select Messaging it says (for me) "No SMS Messages" and has an open to create a New SMS message...


Does this just not work but Netgear left it in there to enhance confusion?
