When there is any of  šđžćčlŠĐŽĆČ (serbian, croatian,
bosnian...)characters in sms (my guess is when sms is using utf16 and
not gsm-7) , I get ? in inbox instead of each of these.
If I send sms with any of this characters, sms receipient gets empty sms.

that will resolve this pg issue.

My question here is does sqlite or filesystem have same issues, as using pg.
