A simple application for getting all the SMSes stored on the Huawei mobile modems. I made it, because my provider only has a Windows application, and I need to check the messages from time to time :)

Building and running

  1. Get the code: $ git clone

  2. make:

 $ make  

 Making smsread...
 g++ -Wall -o bin/smsread main.cpp
  1. If all went well, run as root:
    # ./bin/smsread

You should see something like this:

 # ./bin/smsread 
 Sending stuff...
