    On my Windows Mobile phone, I had this great app that let me plug my phone in to my computer then control the screen of the phone, launch apps, type text messages, etc. right from the computer screen. This made it so easy to reply to text messages without my boss knowing, or while being lazy in bed.

    Any type of app like this for Android? I downloaded the SDK but I can only take screenshots with it, I can't control the phone.

    Theres an app called "Phone Portal" in my Milestone (2.1).
    It gives me access to SMS and Call records from my PC Browser.

    I'd love an app like this too, used to be able to send and receive SMS direct from my address book via Bluetooth with my 5+year old SE-T630 and Mac OSX, so always bemused why it's not almost standard today from any OS/Phone/Outlook/etc.

    I use MyPhoneExplorer Android PC Suite available free from here:-

    FJ Software Development

    with the MyPhoneExplorer app, free from the Market, on my phone.

    This allows me to connect via WiFi, also does Bluetooth, and send and receive SMS with the screen minimised.

    Features:
    • Adressbook - with direct sync to Outlook, GMail, Windows contacts, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Lotus Notes and Tobit David
    • Organizer with calendarview and direct sync to Outlook, Google, Sunbird, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Windows calendar(Vista), Rainlendar, Lotus Notes, Tobit David and net shared calendars (WebDAV, FTP, local)
    • SMS - archive, export, import, excessive messages,...
    • Filebrowser with cachesystem to minimize datatransfer, automatic photosync...
    • Set phoneclock based on atomtime
    • and much more. f.e.: calllists, edit profiles, control phone, memorystatus, phonemonitor,...


    Hope this helps. :D

    Not what the OP is asking for but I use Google Voice to send/receive SMS from any internet-connected PC. It doesn't offer any of the other functionality that the OP is asking about.

    Air Droid is great, assuming Wi-Fi is an option
