GSM/GPRS Module - SM5100B as GSM uplink receiver?

Hi guys,

I am working on a project at the university to receive and decode uplink GSM packets. I was having a look at the GSM/GPRS Module - SM5100B and I wonder if it can be used as a uplink receiver (to detect signals from other phones), even if it is meant to work as a downlink receiver.

Best regards,
