So you mean it should just work with my ISO-8859 settings and with the content also ISO-8859 encoded or the content should always be utf8 encoded?  Please let me know exactly what debug output you would like to see as there are several combinations of locale settings and content encoding.

you still didn't show the debug output I asked in my previous reply

IMO this aspect doesn't need specific documentation because it's
supposed to work automatically if all the programs use the same
encoding (terminal and gnokii or smsd and database and your
application) because libgnokii converts to and from your locale
settings so it shouldn't matter if you're using UTF-8 or ISO-8859-*
