Is this not possible in NZ?

Overseas I just use the number and gateway as the address. Seems here they want to charge for such a service.

Why not just use Mighty Text (http://mightytext.net/)? Probably one of the most useful things I have on my phone.

Unfortunately because in all there brilliance creating amazing voice recognition and personal assitant software they seemed to have wiped the ability for Windows phones to interface with a PC for SMS.

Even Symbian had this feature.

Windows is still amazing hardware but that featureless annoys me.
