Yeah so I found that Ruby pdu_tools module allows decoding PDUs
properly while I did not have much luck with other tools.
So I wrote a hasty script to read SMS, copy it to a Maildir and
then ack it:

Yeah at least we're dealing with standard PDU format now for
Also looks like there is no status on the modem for these incoming
messages as checked with mmcli. I guess the idea with raw PDU
access is that the message is delivered directly to the client
and then acked instead of being queued in the modem?

So what are you using to ack the received SMS over ttyUSB4?
My logs show that Android uses two different commands for ack.
Either AT+GCNMA=1 or AT+CNMA=0,0 gets used depending on something
that I have no idea of.. Maybe the network connected?
Sending SMS via /dev/motmdm3 needs move investigation, but at
least ModemManager mmcli can be used to create and send SMS.
Hmm or what are you using to send SMS over ttyUSB4?
I think you already replied with some of that info earlier
but I can't find it..
Oh one more thing, I noticed that on /dev/motmdm1, typing
AT+SCRN=0 supresses notifications except for WAKEUP, and then
1 is used to enable them again. That allows the UART to idle
instead of getting network status messages every few seconds :)
