MDMA stands for Mobile Data Monitoring Application. MDMA tool is very famous because of its features. I had already written article about MDMA tool here and I had shared Mobile Data Monitoring Application Version 18.104.22.168 also. On 21 Aug 2013 MDMA – a Mobile Data Monitoring Application released his latest version 22.214.171.124 and now it is available for download. Download link of MDMA – a Mobile Data Monitoring Application version 126.96.36.199 is available at the end of the article.
Instructions to use MDMA 188.8.131.52 – a Mobile Data Monitoring Application :
Before running MDMA make sure you have no other applications or dashboards open that might be using your data device’s communications port. Many dashboard applications drop the connection when you close them; you can use Ctrl-Alt-Del to pop up the Windows Task Manager, select the dashboard application and click on the End Task button, and your internet connection will remain open. When you are finished with MDMA you can close it without dropping your connection and open your dashboard again. Doing this will keep your data counters running. You can use your dashboard application or MDMA to keep track of your usage, but not both. Be sure to disconnect your internet connection from the program in which you wish to track your usage. Most dashboard applications use the autorun mechanism to start their dashboard when the modem is inserted, to temporarily stop this behaviour, hold down the
Shift key down while inserting the modem. For a more permanent fix, you can disable autorun in your registry or prevent the emulated CD-ROM from being assigned a drive letter in Disk Management.
Additionally, some recent dashboards also install a service that starts their dashboard, simply disable thse services to prevent his behaviour. Service names to look out for are ‘DCservice.exe’, ‘Vodafone Mobile Broadband Service’ and ‘UI Assistant Service’.
Features of MDMA 184.108.40.206 – a Mobile Data Monitoring Application
You can view and set your default APN here, much easier than using a modem initialization string. If your modem does not have a default APN configured, it is automatically set to ‘internet’.
Various dashboard does not come with USSD features. With the help of MDMA 220.127.116.11 too, you can enter USSD commands here, these are commands in the form *123# that are normally entered on your mobile phones’s keypad. Clicking on ‘USSD Help’ will display a brief listing of some USSD commands offered by your operator (if available). Sending a USSD command creates a session, some USSD services are billable, when you are finished, click the End Session button. USSD commands that don’t require any further input automatically end the session, in which case the End Session remains greyed out. You can send multiple USSD commands sepeated by commas, for example: *111#,1,6 for Vodacom pre-paid data bundle balance. MDMA will wait for a response before sending the next command.
Cellular Broadcast Messages
Received cellular broadcast messages such as cell info, weather reports and base staion info are shown here. Not all operators provide 3G cell broadcasts, you might need to switch your evice in GPRS/EDGE Only mode to receive them.
This interrogates your data device and SIM card, not all devices and SIM cards provide all of the information.
This instructs your device to do a full reset, you should notice that the device disappears from your operating system and gets detected again. Some older cards or drivers do not recover from a full reset gracefully and require you to restart your computer before they become operational again.
Connect / Disconnect
This allows you to connect and disconnect from the internet using a network device (NDIS) or a dial-up networking (RAS) connection. MDMA will use NDIS if available, otherwise fall back to RAS by executing ‘rasphone.exe -d MDMA’. Rasphone is a command line tool for dial-up networking which is part of your Windows installation. You must have a dial-up networking connection named ‘MDMA’ otherwise you will see the following message: ‘Error 623: The system could not find the phone book entry for this connection.’.The behavior can be changed to that of older versions of MDMA (18.104.22.168 and earlier) by using the /dialmode command line switch (see command line options below). When you are online the button changes to Disconnect which disconnects the modem in the proper manner and reset the data counters for the current session and adds to the totals. (Huawei devices only)
This allows you finer control of the bands used by the modem than the Connection Type described above. Depending on your modem, you can enable and disable individual or groups of bands, e.g. GSM 900, UMTS 2100. This is currently available for Huawei and Sierra Wireless modems. Band configuration of ZTE modems is currently disabled due to reports of these modems not enabling UMTS 900 when set to default settings. This can be enabled using a command line switch (at your own risk!).
