Generally speaking, no. Emulators are not designed to use live network protocols for SMS or MMS messaging.

For SMS messaging, there is no standard way of sending text messages over TCP/IP.

For MMS, it is technically possible ... but usually not implemented in an emulator.

Every MMS client emulator that we've seen has a proprietary interface for delivering a message to the client. From what I've seen, they either read MMS message files from a directory ... or you need to manually open a file that contains an MMS message. Overall, they are not good for interfacing with an actual MMSC.

Here's an old link where Bryce talks about sending an MMS message to an emulator by configuring NowSMS to send the WAP Push via IP instead of SMS: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/485/4184.html

If an emulator listens for WAP Push over UDP port 2948 (which an actual phone would do), then it is possible. But aside from MMS clients being developed in lab environments and tested with NowSMS, I'm not aware of any general purpose emulator downloads.

Unfortunately, the best solution for most people is sending messages over a live network.
