One of my favorite things about my iPhone was the ability to receive/send SMS/MMS through my web browser on my computer. As far as I know, Android has alternatives for this, but they all rely on an online service which isn't ideal.

Is there any way to send/receive SMS/MMS through a PC without the use of an online service?
