 Thanks. I got your example to work and also some others. Not sure why it
didn't work earlier, perhaps the SMSes I was expecting were delayed and
received after I booted to Windows. I did not realize that SMSes are not
stored on the modem itself, or perhaps they are but in a way not visible on
the Linux side, since the D-Link app has 2 separate SMS stores: "Local" and
"DataCard". I was expecting to see all of the SMSes I see in the Windows
D-Link app to be visible to mmcli and MM GUI, but even mmcli and MM GUI do
not share storage. Anyhow, as long as I can send and receive in Linux that
is sufficient.

Thanks for the help.
