I have a Vodafone 3G Dongle which I use to connect to internet on my Ubuntu 12.04 laptop. All is working fine. Now I want to add sms and call facility to this device so that I could make calls directly from my laptop or send sms and receive the same.

I works fine in windows with latest Mobile Partner Application from Huawei.

How it can be done on Ubuntu ? Also If you will be suggesting Gammu or Wammu, please help me with the steps involved, as I tried this but nothing happened..


You can SMS through vodafone-mobile-broadband package:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:crass/v-mobile-broadband
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install v-mobile-broadband
  • I already have 'Modem Manager GUI'. But while sending sms, its gives error as, Error sending message, GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ModemManager.Modem.Connectec: Cannot perform this operation while connected – Anuj TBE Jul 21 '14 at 6:44
