Do you mean SMS capabilities the only feature you need, without data access? You've mentioned "sierra qualcomm". It might mean Sierra Wireless em7455 wwan modem in installed in your laptop. This modem doesn't feature 2G (GSM/ GPRS/EDGE) either CDMA/EV-DO networks capabilities. So, classic SMS feature isn't available.
em7455 features SMS over LTE only, its IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) or signaling interface for SMS (“SMS over SGs”) if your cellular operator offers these features for LTE networks.
Do it well, worse becomes itself
