Hello Alex,

thanks for your input .. I've forgot to add, that this was the first
idea that came into my mind and I've checked that .. mmcli says it's

# mmcli -m 1 --messaging-list-sms

No SMS messages were found

However I doubt that mmcli is querying the SIM memory. According to memory

# mmcli -m 1 --messaging-status

  Messaging | supported storages: 'mt'
            |    default storage: 'unknown'

I've tried several otger opts with --store-in-storage=mt but it didn't
work .. I think that the last resort that I'm going to try is to
insert the SIM into some cell phone and try to check the status of its
storage like that .. Will tell you the result ..

thanks again and regards, dan
