Yes, sending/receiving SMS and access to phonebook can be done with AT
commands and fully documented in the GSM standart specifications.

However, some phones does not implement all functions and work
correctly. Any code that talks to gsm modem (mobile phone) is full of
hacks specific to the device / model.

There are already lot of open source code that supports majority of
mobile phones.
Gammu, KMobileTools, libgsm are some of them.
