comment Looking for Vodafone's mobile broadband application for Debian 8 (Jessie); does it still exist?
Oh, sorry, didn't notice that line added too. Searching their nice database of supported HW at wammu.eu/phones finds quite a few entries for K3765 (which might be what I actually have) reporting sms working; that looks like the most promising one yet then.

Gnokii lists "partial support" for the K3565 at the end of wiki.gnokii.org/index.php/Config ; I'm pessimistic: chances are that means the relatively standard modem commands for dialing will probably work, but vendor-specific protocols for extras like SMS won't. Looks worth a try though (but probably not for a few days).

vnstat does look pretty good; passes the "current in Debian" test too packages.debian.org/jessie/vnstat and the configuration file is flexible enough to support monthly limits which refresh on a specific day etc.

Interesting, although it seems to have died ~2009 (project still on CVS on sourceforge! Oldschool!) and so would even pre-date Vodafone's own tool. But a cursory look at the code suggests that while it can send SMS, there is no support for receiving/retrieving them.

Blubphone looked promising at first glance, but on closer inspection it appears to be just remote access to SMS on an android phone, by running an app on the phone. Not much use with a USB dongle. textbelt is interesting... but only for sending; not much use if any replies are inaccessible. (And did you intend to link something else for network tracking? That's linked to blubphone too; guessing it was supposed to point to something different?).

comment How to get Evolution to run in VNC on Debian/Wheezy?
Nice write up at your link; thanks for sharing. Yes it's a VNC server with decent GLX support would be an ideal fix IMHO, especially with more and more Linux-world GUI apps seem to be adopting OpenGL-based toolkits (e.g Qt5 heavily depends on OpenGL). Good tip about libgl1-mesa-swx11, although I do like the fact VirtualGL means I get HW accel (not that I've ever tried to assess the benefits in the VNC access setup).
