* have sim security enabled, but do not enter your pin code at start up (so that you have no GSM connection)
* try to send a SMS
=> the message says that there is no simcard, which is wrong.

The problem is that the mobilemessaging API is returning an error "NoSimCardError" and in Gaia we display the associated error.

For leo, we could display the generic error message instead, so no late-l10n necessary.

BTW I remember saying that I didn't want the API to return error codes at first, and, well, this bug reinforces my view here.

I don't think this should be leo but I'm asking nevertheless because triagers my think otherwise.
Adding qawanted to check what we have in 1.0.1 in this situation.

- there is no any notification on v1.0.1, 
- the message is shown as pending(red exclamation mark) on both v1.0.1 and v1.1, tapping it to resend will ask "The message could not be sent. Try again?", same behavior on v1.0.1 and v1.1

leo- for now given we have the same behavior in 1.0.1 and this is not a regression.Lets improve around the error messaging in future release.

Are there still plans for a fix for this issue? It is affecting Buri branches 1.2 and 1.3 and is blocking a case on the localisation run currently.

When attempting to send an MMS with the a locked SIM, the phone is displaying a Sim card error message.
