Maybe you can contact to your provider. They can offer bulk sms service
which is usually cheaper and faster.

The real limit of the number of sms sent per minute is the delay of
the sms center. The phone have to wait for the acknowledge first.

gnokiid don't support it, but you can use gnokii --reset to reset
your phone.

solution is to catch incoming call to get the call id and call
GN_OP_CancelCall to reject it.
