Have you looked at the project RapidSMS, developed with support from Unicef?
[1] "RapidSMS is designed to run on any standard computer paired with a
standard GPRS modem or certain models of cell phones."[2]

I have been lurking on their lists for a while, with my interest in the
Sahana Disaster Management System[3], but have gathered that at its core is
a python library, pyGSM [4]. I don't know if there is a PyGTK front end.

Best of luck!
