Hm.

For one thing, you're not reading anything, how can you even tell if the device answers? It might be waiting for data to get read from it before it'll do anything else.

For another thing, maybe it needs carriage returns, which UNIX usually doesn't provide or use. You can force echo to produce them of course...

Code:
# Open ttyS2 for reading and writing as FD 5
exec 5<>/dev/ttyS2
# Leave this running in the background
cat <&5 &
# Write a command to FD 5
echo -en "AT\r\n" >&5
sleep 3
echo -en "AT+CMGF=1\r\n" >&5
sleep 3
echo -en "AT+CMGS=\"333xxxxxxx\"\r\n" >&5
sleep 3
# Is this supposed to have a carriage return + linefeed?  Not sure.
echo -en "ciao\x1a\r\n" >&5

It'd be good to know if the serial device is producing any response at all, working or not... Does it print anything when you type in the AT command in PuTTY? I'd start with that, just get that working, and add other bits once I know I have that.
