Hello, I have been working on it for almost a month now and still I can't get it to work. I am using an Ubuntu (Wubi - Windows installer) and a Huawei E1552. Below is my smsd.conf and log.

devices = GSM1
logfile = /var/log/smsd.log
outgoing = /var/spool/sms/outgoing
checked = /var/spool/sms/checked
incoming = /var/spool/sms/incoming
failed = /var/spool/sms/failed
sent = /var/spool/sms/sent
loglevel = 7

init = AT^CURC=0
device = /dev/ttyUSB0
incoming = no
baudrate = 9200
report_device_details =yes
signal_quality_ber_ignore = yes
smsc = 639170000130
'smsdconf' Syntax Highlight powered by GeSHi

This is my command when sending message. sendsms 639170000101 'Test'

As you can see on the log, no sending of message is happening. What could be the possible reason htat causes this problem? Is it hardware compatibility issues? Receiving is not a problem as it works fine. I searched on the forum and no one seems having the same problem with mine. Any brilliant ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

Already figured out what causes this problem. It was a permission issue. When invoking sendsms command as root, the file created in outgoing directory was owned by root and has 600 permission. This is why smsd stack at "Waiting for messages to send..." message because it can't move the file from outgoing to checked directory.

Hope this will help to those having this issue also. Cheers!
