Questions about alternate modem_QUECTEL EM060K-GL

I recently purchased a Quectel EM060K-GL modem specifically for the 600mhz band that T-Mobile has. My evergreen Librem5 will not see this modem, no matter what I do to it. I have confirmed it is receiving power from the mainboard, have the appropriate driver installed, but the device is not appearing in any menu or terminal command.

Would there be something I could do to get this modem working?

For a question like this, sometimes it helps to provide a product link.


This is true.

It’s a fairly big ask to know what’s going wrong but I would explore:

  • the system journal - does it show any sign of detecting the card?
  • lsusb - since the card reportedly is accessed via USB
  • information relating to the PinePhone - since it at least uses a Quectel modem

I note that you can’t even get the Specifications of this card without providing PII. Not a good start.
