Dial In/Out + SMS In/Out now works

The way I sent a message was:

0.Boot up the Neo, enter SIM code and wait for registration.
1.Select the message icon from the home page.
2.On the bottom select the pencil looking icon, which apparently puts 
you into message writing mode.
3.Enter a phone number at the top input bar, labelled 'Unknown'. I 
didn't use country code, eg. +45 for Denmark, and I don't suppose it is 
4.Push on the field below and type some text, which will become your SMS 
5.The 0/160 field to above-right will show how many characters you have 
typed and how many your are able to type in all.
6.Regarding how many characters you are able to type in all, 160 is 
actually not correct, but should be 156. I don't remember what the last 
4 chars are used for, because GSM says 160 chars, but effectively it has 
always been 156chars.
7.When you are done, hit the top-left icon that looks like an envelope 
in a hurry.
8.You should now get pop-up windows showing that connection attempts are 
made to your service provider.
9.If you get as far as #8. the message should be on its way, but if no 
message shows up after hitting the 'send' button, then the message is 
not sent.

Let us know how you do (everyone of you, with a Neo! :-)
