You can't.

But, on the other hand, you can use the Kies Air application, which you can obtain through Samsung Apps. It allows you to access your mobile on the desktop browser if both PC and phone share the same Wifi network.

Then you would be able to send/recv messages on the desktop, amid many other things like accessing photos, videos, contacts, call logs, music, file system... and so on. It is like a small web interface to your mobile.

Kies Air does support sending of SMS thru PC. You need to connect the PC and your handset with the same network.

Could you provide a link to your source? Or provide a better description? Just the other two answers say you can't. –  Peanut Jun 28 '13 at 9:06
