Looking at the code you posted, it seems that PyQt is only used to process
strings, and that the rest is done using PySide and the PySide Mobility
bindings. Two suggestions come to mind:

 1. Have you considered using the PyQtMobility package with PyQt?

 2. Whatever you're using, you probably need to start the event loop for the
    SMS to be sent. You should call app.exec_() to do this.
