Help receiving SMS on ubuntu or other linux flavors

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
