    Default Mavericks Notifications: SMS receive/send from iPhone?

    I know that Mavericks will send and receive iMessages via Notifications.

    What I would like to know is, if my iPhone gets an SMS, AND I'm sitting next to my Mac, can I set it up where I can send and receive SMS messages via the Mac?

    It would seem to be a simple connection via the same wi-fo network, or bluetooth, to allow such a feature.

    If not, is there an existing program that will do that?

    You can do that now on Mountain Lion.

    Would you care to explain how?

    To clarify: I don't mean an iMessages message. I mean pure SMS. MMS would be a plus, but not crucial.

    No, you can't do SMS as that is handled by your cell provider and your Mac (regardless of the version of OS X) does not have a sim card in it.

    Apparently my question is still not being understood.

    I'm looking for a link between my phone and computer where SMS texts received by my phone will show on my Mac as a notification (or otherwise). As a bonus, I'd love to respond to that SMS, where the Mac will send that data to the phone, and the phone will send the text out via cell service.

    Not natively. There may be some apps that will do that... like GoogleTalk (which IS supported in OS X Message applet)... stuff like that... but not just using native apps on iPhone/OS X.
