I am looking to receive SMS text messages on Ubuntu. Have tried At&t/Cricket wireless SIM cards with Huaewei (USB modem) and Nokia phones connected via USB and no luck. Looking for a complete solution. Will pay reasonable amount for the right solution. Preference is Ubuntu but will consider other linux flavors.

At what level are you working? In my last job, I did write a program to send and receive SMS messages over both 4G and Satellite using the AT command set (Sierra Wireless modems). Required a lot of reading of Sierra Wireless documentation and also the ISO standards. But perhaps you are working at a higher level than that.
