also the destination number should start with a + or you shouldn't use
the international prefix

text mode is different because the SMSC number and other parameters
are set before using AT+CMGS and in some cases the SMSC number set in
phone menus is not used by the AT interpreter, use AT+CSCA? to see it

some phones have troubles with the SMSC number; you can check if it's
your case by changing 0 to 1 in common/phones/atgen.c at line 3242
        drvinst->no_smsc = 0;
when set to 1 the phone should use the same number returned by AT+CSCA?
