Does anyone know if there is a Windows Phone App that will effectively function as an autoresponder or "Out of Office" for incoming SMS messages?

Or another clever way of doing this?

I believe the service provider is Vodafone, if that would make a difference.

nathan: Quiet Hours can do this

Thanks, Nathan.  However, not sure if that feature is available in NZ.

The webpage you linked says "Cortana is only available on phones with Windows Phone 8.1, and in some countries/regions." That links to another page, which says:

Cortana is available in the following countries/regions: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, United States.

Is that functionality actually available in NZ?

(The phone is Windows 8.1, which is a good start!  8.10.14219.341, apparently)

nathan: change your phone region in settings

That is a... disappointing solution.
