Can I receive SMS messages through my phone via Yahoo! messenger (mobile)?

I understand the "mobile" Yahoo! messenger is made so that you can instant message through your phone.

But I use the Yahoo! messenger (on the computer) to send SMS messages to friends through the computer, so if I am signed in on my phone and someone texts me through Yahoo! messenger, can I receive that text on my phone also?
