I'm not a php programmer, just a quick look into the php manual:

You have to get the return status of the gnokii command: add a second
argument to the passthru function. BTW using user input ($message
variable) without escaping in this way is quite dangerous.

Don't forget if you run gnokii directly from a web page can create
concurrency problems. Don't forget to activate locking. If I were
you I use smsd instead of it. smsd is a stand alone daemon (e.g.
you can start it from an init script) and you can communicate with
it via an sql database (e.g. mysql, postgresql). Look into the
smsd/README file for details!
