I completely understand your request, however the device is not capable of that function. Subsequently, there may be an application available in the Play Store that will accomodate your request. I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Thanks for your involvement in our community forums,
Is there a Play store app. Yes I have seen many of them you will need wifi though for most of them because the text messages will stream to your computer via wifi and you can text back via the computer via wifi.
