Thanks Marcus,
        Now even I understand why it currently doesn't work. 
        How can it be made to work ?
        Is there some way, apart from leaving you guys alone, that I can help? 
                I do code in Perl and  VB ;( so perhaps if I knew a bit more I
        could pick up the constructs to be able to be of some real help. This 
is just  an idea 
        tell me if you think that I am talking b*ll*cks.

Patiently yours

The problem is that with newer phones there are different memory types,
that's the reason why it does not work. smsd code is mainly ripped from
xgnokii, so there must be similiar changes in in order to make it work.
The whole getting SMS routines have to be changed. In xgnokii I made
them totally separate, as they are very different. Up to now you just
read locations in SM until you get GE_INVALIDLOCATION. This only works
with older phones. For newer phones you have to think about which
messages to get. You have to get the folder status (6510) plus SMS
status for (6210) as it doesn't recognize unread SMS otherwise.

Sorry, for that then. Perhaps I misunderstood Pawel ion IRC. IIRC he
said that it is mostly unmaintained, but I may as well be wrong.
