I am sending SMS with a Fibocom L850GL wwan card.

I want to send SMS from command line. I am able to send SMS from GUI using modem-manager-gui.

I have created the following issue on modem-manager issue tracker: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-broadband/ModemManager/issues/162#note_343848

According to modem-manager author (see comment), modem-manager-gui is using mmcli to send SMS.

When I try to send SMS with mmcli from terminal I have errors:

dka@dka:[~]: mmcli -m 0 --messaging-create-sms="text='Hello world',number='+33692822789'"
Successfully created new SMS: /org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/SMS/0
dka@dka:[~]: mmcli -s 0 --send -v
[28 Nov 2019, 03:46:12] [Debug] Assuming '0' is the SMS index
[28 Nov 2019, 03:46:12] [Debug] ModemManager process found at ':1.8'
[28 Nov 2019, 03:46:12] [Debug] Sms found at '/org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/SMS/0'

error: couldn't send the SMS: 'GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.libmbim.Error.Status.Failure: Couldn't send SMS part: Failure'

How to grab mmcli log when sendind SMS from modem-manager-gui, I want to know the exact command to send SMS.
