Hi all

I want to receive SMSs which are sent to my SIM card on my Samsung NC10. This is usefull because some service provider information comes in through this route and I have to remove the SIM and put it in a phone to receive the SMSs. I can also get balance updates in this way. It would be good to send SMSs too, as I get some free ones with my pay as you go SIM.

I tried Wader ( which looks promising. It sees the correct profile but the SMS interface does not work.

Has anyone managed to get this to work correctly?

I am happy to try another solution too if Wader isn't the right one.

I have Ubuntu Netbook Edition Karmic Koala installed.

since nobody replies, i'll post my findings

i also want to read the received sms from my NC10's umts modem. It works under windows xp with the software preinstalled by samsung. i did not test anything else under windows.

tools i found for ubuntu:

Install: sudo apt-get install smsclient
Run: sms_client 0123 'hello there' (to send sms to 0123)
Tried to send a sms with smsclient, didn't work. doesn't show received sms

Install: sudo apt-get install smstools
Not tested by me

Install: sudo apt-get install gammu
sudo gunzip /usr/share/doc/gammu/examples/config/gammurc.gz
sudo cp /usr/share/doc/gammu/examples/config/gammurc /etc/gammurc
sudo gedit /etc/gammurc

replace port and connection below [gammu]
port = /dev/ttyACM0
connection = at

gammu --identify
Hersteller : Samsung
Modell : unknown (GT-Y3100)
Firmware : Y3100XXHL1
IMEI : *****

man gammu
gammu --help sms

Should show saved sms, but doesn't work for me:
gammu getsmsc 1
gammu getsms 0 1

Install: sudo apt-get install wammu
Run: Applications -> Accessories -> Wammu
wammu is only a GUI for gammu. same errors as with gammu ("Unknown error" etc)

launch2net beta demo version
Install: download and open ... 0_i386.deb
Run: Applications -> Internet -> novamedia launch2net
Doesn't recognize modem ("No Device"). Should be able to send and receive sms. apparently not being actively developed and closed source.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wader/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo install wader-gtk
<-- wants to remove "modemmanager"!?
