A couple of people have seen this problem. There are 2 sides to the

There's a way of solving this problem, until I have more time to dive
- send yourself an SMS, and don't read it
- Setup gnokii[1], launch gnokii to try and get this SMS:
gnokii --getsms IN 1 end > smsbox
can you see it in the smsbox file?
If not (which is likely), then that means that it's in another inbox.
Try with ME, SM, and AR instead of IN
- if one of those works, change in libgsm/phonemgr-listener.c line 451:
                message->memory_type = GN_MT_IN;
by something like:
                message->memory_type = GN_MT_ME;

And test gnome-phone-manager again. If this works, or doesn't, please
file a bug in bugzilla.gnome.org


[1]: Should as easy as putting those lines ~/.gnokiirc:
port = <bluetooth address>
model = AT
connection = bluetooth
