For SMS I used to have a small app that was able to read and send them when the phone was connected to the PC, 1998-9 circa... IIRC it used simple AT commands, without any "web service" reading my SMS between. Of course, removed in the new shiny mobes.

I wonder why they took so long to re-implement such features.

MS could have implemented them already in Win8/WP8 times - easier when you control both OS, and it could have made them sell some devices more....
