Remote Messages was a popular Cydia tweak that let you send and receive texts and iMessages from a web interface on your PC and effectively sync them with your iPhone. The tweak has been updated for iOS 7 so it works on all jailbroken iOS 7 devices.

This tweak gives you the ability to chat with your friends over text messages or iMessage from a PC/Mac instead of relying on the small-screen iPhone or iPad keyboard.

In order to be able to send and receive messages over a web interface instead of using your iPhone/iPad, you’ll need to install the tweak from Cydia and configure a couple of things. That’s actually very easy.

    Thanks for the excellent post. My work does not allow brining our iPhones to offices. My question is , Can we use the PC at work to connect with my iPhone at home so that I can use the tweak app to remotely check my sms massages?
    Thanks a lot.
