Well, I disabled suspend/resume hooks in ModemManager and upgraded to
the master branch. Besides that, I also use the master branch of eg25-
manager (a daemon specific for the EG25-G modem enabling, suspend
handling, etc.)[1].

Now calls are working immediately when waking up for suspend :O 
The call URCs are coming in for ModemManager and are processed.

However, text messages are ignored in suspend. The device wakes up but
ModemManager doesn't fetch the latest text messages. If you restart
ModemManager or reboot, the ignored text messages are coming through.
Text messages received when awake are properly processed though.
Text messages are retrieved over QMI instead of AT.

Currently, it's a bit vague for me how this can be solved.
Anyone who has an idea? I tried already several times to trace how the
resume hook works in ModemManager but I get lost each time in the code

That part seems to work fine, it's just ModemManager which takes some
time to reprobe all the properties of the modem as if the modem was
turned off in suspend, that's avoided by disabling these hooks as you
