Nice to hear that you got it working! As you mention, I remind that
there was something :-) Some time ago, I was going to use the
serial port with an LTE shield. I remind I also had to fiddle
with it to get it working.

Actually, RPi 3 B+ has two UARTs. The usual/default UART is
connected with Bluetooth chip by default, thus the Pins on the
header are not working - as you already found out.

If you want to use Bluetooth and UART: There is another UART
in RPi 3 B+ which can be mapped to Bluetooth instead.

you could be using
instead of

This additional uart does not support full speed / handshake but fast enough
for bluetooth in any case. I think it only works with fixed clock freq.
