Try using my Serial test stack
It uses a different method with no waiting. It writes to the com port
but has a read handler that it loops through every 5 ticks to pick up
any incoming data that might be queued.

Testing by sending "AT00" to my modem, it returns "ERROR", but it
comes back instantly.
