Gutted, I was hoping that the apt-get would grab the latest version, once I
have sorted this out I will remove and compile the latest as you suggested.

I have moved on a little now, I have it talking but hitting an error sending
a test sms, below is my new config.

 port = /dev/ttyS0
 model = AT
 initlength = default
 connection = serial
 use_locking = yes
 serial_baudrate = 115200
 handshake = software
 sm_retry = 1
 smsc_timeout = 10
 bindir = /usr/local/sbin/
 TELEPHONE = 12345678
 debug = on
 rlpdebug = off
 xdebug = on

When I try to send the test message
echo "This is a test message" | gnokii --sendsms +44797xxxxxxx -r

I get lots of stuff shoot up my screen but what does stand out is the

Cannot read the SMSC number from your phone. If the sms send will fail,
please use --smsc option explicitely giving the number.

At the end it says:
SMS Send failed (Command timed out.)
Serial device: closing device

So close but yet not sure how close, where should I go from here please.

this is way too old and unsupported
after you solve this problem you should compile the latest version from
sources, see and read the usual INSTALL file

one possible cause of that kind of timeout is a wrong port setting first try
with a terminal program (eg minicom): type AT and press enter, if you get OK
then you can quit the terminal and try gnokii, if not check if the modem is
on /dev/ttyS1
