Bug Description

 When attempting to send an SMS message to a Vodafone UK number beginning with the code 07780 I just receive an operator message back saying:

 "Sorry Destination number format incorrect. Valid number prefixes are +447958879879 or 00447958879879 or from within the UK 07958879879 This message is free."

 However the number I provided matches this format (and I tried it with a +44 and 0044 prefix as well as 0), and I can receive text messages from that number, so it seems like something is mangling the number prior to sending it to the operator.

 This is with rc-proposed image r59 on krillin.

After further investigation it appears that the leading 0 from the number is being discarded, the following is found in the dbus log:

void HistoryDaemon::onMessageSent(Tp::TextChannelPtr, const Tp::Message&, const QString&)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (2)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("7780......")
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (3)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("Network Msg")
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (2)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("7780......")
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (3)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("Network Msg")
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (2)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("7780......")
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles (3)
oFonoConnection::inspectHandles ("Network Msg")
void HistoryDaemon::onMessageReceived(Tp::TextChannelPtr, const Tp::ReceivedMessage&)

 The numbers in the log should be "07780......" instead of "7780......" (the ...s are added manually to disguise the recipient's phone number)
