How can I use this device for sending and recieving SMS ??
www.unixbabuforum.in1. #minicom -s 
Serial port setup 

A - Serial Device : /dev/ttyS0 
E - Bps/Par/Bits : 9600 8N1 

send "AT" to modem, you will recive "OK" 

2. yum install gnokii 
$ cat .gnokiirc 
port = /dev/ttyS0 
model = AT 
initlength = default 
connection = serial 
use_locking = no 
serial_baudrate = 9600 
smsc_timeout = 10 

gnokii --identify 
gnokii --dialvoice xxxxxxxxxxx 
echo "test SMS" | gnokii --sendsms xxxxxxxxxxx
www.unixbabuforum.inTry to find proper device driver from internet and install it 
normally for installation you must install kernel-headers and kernel-devel 
execute uname -a and see kernel-version ... 

installation is easy,normally ./configure; make && make install is enough
