I was wondering if there was a way to check/view messages from my phone. I'm trying to create a program that will be able either read messages from my phone, or reply to them. I'm trying to get this to work for a Window Phone, but I don't know if there is a difference between doing it on a Windows Phone or Android. Most of the topics that somewhat relate to what I'm doing are all Android based.

I've looked at AT Commands, SMS Gateways, but I'm still not sure if it's entirely possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Welcome to the Ranch.

When you say "read messages from my phone", where would the code doing this run, and would kind of connection would it have to he phone?

I would like to have the program run from the computer. The connection would be from a USB to the computer.

It should be possible to write a mobile app that handles SMS and can also communicate via USB, but I doubt that this functionality exists built in. I have no knowledge of Windows Phone to know for sure, though. On Android something like this could probably be facilitated via the ADB debug tool (or at the least that could handle the USB communication part); maybe something similar exists on Windows Phone.
