_phonebook_get ()
    local NAME="$1"
    local NUMBER

    # returns a valid phonenumber, if entry exists
    # otherwise returns false


_send_sms ()
    local DESTINATION="$1"
    local TEXT="$2"
    local PROVIDER="$( uci get system.service.sms.provider )"

    local NUMBER="$( _phonebook_get $DESTINATION )" || {
                         logger "user '$DESTINATION' unknown"
                         return 1

    _send_sms_$PROVIDER "$NUMBER" "$TEXT"
