SMSDroid is a service that let's you access and send SMS messages and view contacts over a TCP socket (or via good old telnet :)). Supports password login.
I've noticed a lot of people rating this application down because they don't understand how it works, so I've added a small tutorial at the bottom.
!! Most providers do not allow this over 3G. Use WiFi. !!
Telnet in and type help to begin.
Update 0.2.0: Added getSMS and getContacts features + bugfixes.
1) Start SMSDroid on your handset
2) Set a password
3) Start the service
4) On your windows machine hit start -> run and type in 'cmd' then click ok
5) In the new CMD window type 'telnet' followed by the ip and port show in SMSDroid. Example: 'telnet 10.0.0.52 7777'. Then hit enter. *
6) Now enter your password and when you get to the prompt enter 'help' and hit enter to get a overview of the commands available.
*) If you get a message saying telnet does not exist you're probably running Windows 7. Please google 'telnet+windows+7' for a bunch of guides on how to add telnet to W7. It's quite easy.

Does what it says. Great! Boot up daemon, log in via telnet client and off you go! Sweet!
Ok I know this is gonna be a cool app... I want to know how to set it up...can anyone tell me? I'm really not that dumb...I think
The solution to my deadzone i like to call home. Finally i can send texts again inside the house! 5-stars
I don't get it
For all you noobs that dont know what this app is, quit commenting and rating. For the people that know what this app is for, it works perfectly!
Didn't work? What is it supposed to do?

Doesn't seem to be interfacing with my telnet client correctly. New lines are indented increasingly more for each new line.
