This seems to depend on the cellphone concerned. So, I don't think so,
but if you file a bug in GNOME Bugzilla it will remind me to take a
closer look when I have time.

I've never experienced this problem before. The GNOME Phone Manager
crashing in itself is a bug anyway. With my Ericsson phones the SMS is
never deleted from the phone itself. Maybe Nokia kit is different, but
I don't have any to test with.

That again is device dependent. Mostly though the answer is "no", as
your cellphone will have only one emulated serial port available.
