Hi,

The Nokia 6212 should have no problem sending SMS messages, but its GSM modem implementation does not support receiving messages.

Unfortunately, a few years ago Nokia stopped supporting the GSM modem interface for processing received messages. This effects all Series 60 (Symbian/S60) phones ... which includes the 6212 ... and all other Nokia phones released since mid-2006. (Series 40 phones prior to "3rd edition" supported both sending and receiving SMS over the GSM modem interface. Series 40 "3rd edition" dropped the receive support.)

Generally speaking, you're best off with a dedicated GSM modem device such as those from Wavecom, Multitech, Falcom, Option, iTegno.

If you have to use a phone, SonyEricsson phones tend to have the most complete GSM modem implementation (except for the "X" and "P" series).
