so you have been lucky because 8bit format means "binary data" and it
isn't supposed to work with the default SMS application of a phone, in
fact those messages should be silenty discarded by the phone if there
isn't a special application on the specific port referenced in the SMS

you didn't give enough details to tell where the problem is

first provide the debug output[1] of gnokii --sendsms without -8 and
use the fake driver[2] since it produces less output; the default
gnokiirc has a [fake] section so you can use this line:

echo -n "ñó" | gnokii --phone fake --sendsms 0

whatever the encoding of your terminal, the SMS should be encoded in
the same way (UCS2 in this case since ó is not part of the Default GSM
