[ubuntu] Sending and receiving SMS with Ubuntu 9.10

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have the UMTS Stick Huawei E160 with a prepaid SIM card from tchibo/O2 in Germany. The prepaid SIM allows daily flat-rates at a reasonable price however I need to send and receive a SMS (short message service) in order to book the daily flat-rate. I have tried the following programs already: 1. umtsmon (in different vrsions incuding the O2 version). Unfortunately I was not able to send or receive SMS with umtsmon 2. Wammu (intalled trough the repositories); I can read the SMS from the SIM card however I get an error message when sending a SMS and the program fails. I guess there must be other Ubuntu users that use their UMTS stick to send an receive SMS. What is your solution and ho o you do it? I am even open for any solution. So far I have to use a Windows machine or but the SIM in my mobile phone in order to book the daily flat-rate. I am sure there are better solutions. Thank you for your help Sven (HowTos)
