The SAMBA modems are USB powered and can respond to normal AT commands for things like signal strength and so forth. Using the sms-tools kit, you can also send/receive SMS messages. The SAMBA modem I have supports EDGE.

Subject: GSM modem test point with data and SMS support

We have some interest in testing the real-world connectivity of several
cellular towers using a GSM modem that has both a IP address on the WWAN and
has SMS support.  Is anyone aware of a self-contained box that supports both
technologies?  EDGE support is preferred, but GPRS would be acceptable.
