Information about Quectel RM502Q-AE 5G NR working in Greece Review by Nikolas
Value Quality Delivery time Price
I got it working with firmware version "RM502QAEAAR11A04M4G_01.004.01.004" with Cosmote Greece.
and i had to disable mbn autoselect based on sim and select the ROW_Commercial mbn.
The at commands to fix the issue after flashing the firmware are:
I tried the latest firmware version "RM502QAEAAR13A02M4G_01.001.01.001" also that I was provided by quectel support in quectel forums but even if i selected ROW_Commercial mbn it could not register. I have not investigated further the issue due to limited time, I am sticking with "RM502QAEAAR11A04M4G_01.004.01.004" with "ROW_Commercial" MBN profile for the time being. If I discover more details I will let you know (Posted on 7/17/2022)
