It is a TODO item means: somebody  yet has to implement it. There is no existing work on it so far.

I think there is little effort in the actual transmission of the SMS over a GPRS channel itself. The bigger question is who will handle it and where. SMS handling so far was/is inside the NITB, and GPRS handling is inside the SGSN

So the logical choice is to first externalize the SMSC code from the NITB (or now OsmoMSC on which Neels is working) and then simply talk to that external smsc from both the SGSN and the MSC.

In terms of effort, I would assume anywhere between one and two weeks full time for somebody familiar with the code.

Regards,
Harald.
