For reference, see here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hayes_command_set

AT commands are not used for what you think they are. In order to flash the firmware on your device, you will have to use either your vendor's firmware flashing utility, third party, etc.

http://www.business.vodafone.com/sit...p_software.jsp

That was one of the first links I found on google; I found answers to all of your questions by searching around (no thinking involved) - https://www.google.com/search?q=voda...pdate+firmware

1st thanks for your kind reply, i have no win system and cannot use by the moment. is there any possibilty to flash the write-protected partition that contains the voda software? I also tried
Code:
echo "AT^CARDLOCK=(flash code)^M" > /dev/ttyUSB0
but it did not work at all.

Have you ever seen any web page that describes using AT (attention) commands to flash a modem?

no but i hadn't seen how to read/backup/restore efs but at+clac command shows that it exists. as u already probably know the win upgrading programs just send a flash code to the write-protected partition to turn off the protection, procede the upgrading software (not the firmware) and then it turn on protection back on. i would like to do this by myself on a linux sistem through a command line. next step is know how to do the same with the firmware. i would live to leave win systems.
but i am just a messy account clerk, that's why i need some help some kind people like u.
