the control module. After software is downloaded, the parameters are sent to the Volvo central database. Information about changes to the customer data
for Volvo On Call is then sent from the Volvo central database to the web portal which manages data for Volvo On Call. The data is also sent to the
Volvo On Call Service Center via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
The unique PIN is programmed into the phone module (PHM) during a software download.
The following parameters are read off and transmitted to the Volvo central database:
GSM number for Volvo On Call
The unique PIN code
The PUK code for the internal SIM card for Volvo On Call
IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity), serial number for the GSM unit
The version number of the software for the GSM unit
The type of unit.
NOTE: After replacing the phone module (PHM), the Volvo On Call functionality must be activated if the customer has an active subscription.
This does not happen automatically during the order process.
Volvo On Call is activated either via software orders or via the keypad on the climate control module (CCM). After the Volvo On Call functionality is
activated, the phone module (PHM) will wait for information about the position of the vehicle for 20 minutes. The position is transmitted from the global
positioning system module (GPS) via the MOST network. During this time, the car must be parked outdoors with no large obstacles which could prevent
the global positioning system module (GPS) from establishing contact with the GPS satellites obscuring it. If the phone module (PHM) is unable to
receive a position within this time, the activation sequence will be cancelled. Volvo On Call functionality switches to deactivated. After the phone
module (PHM) has obtained the position of the car, the ON CALL button must be held in for at least two seconds to connect a voice call the Volvo On
Call Service Center. This call is made to confirm the new vehicle data and to check that Volvo On Call is functioning correctly.
Because of the unique PIN code and the internal SIM card, phone modules (PHM) with Volvo On Call functionality cannot be moved between cars.
Activating and deactivating Volvo on Call
Software can also be downloaded to activate or deactivate the Volvo On Call function. This requires a PIN code to be retrieved from the Volvo central
database. The menu can also be used to activate and deactivate the functionality. Instructions and the PIN code for this are on the Volvo On Call website.
If necessary, for example if Volvo On Call is being misused, the network operator is also able to cancel the subscription for the internal SIM card for
Volvo On Call. After Volvo On Call functionality is activated, the same information applies in terms of searching for GPS satellites and the connection
of a voice call to the Volvo On Call Service Center.
If the Volvo On Call function is activated, a text message will indicate this to the user. The text message is displayed in the driver information module
(DIM) at the start of each operating cycle (key position I).
