Is it possible to make/receive calls and send/receive texts using my PC, rather than my phone?

I have a SIM card which, of course, is tied to a particular phone number on a particular network. Is there any hardware available that lets me attach the SIM card to my PC in some way, and any software so that I can then make/receive calls and send/receive texts using my PC? I am happy to use either Windows or Linux.
I want to do this so that I can mess about with my phone for a few hours without missing calls/texts in the process. The only other (less preferable) option that I can think of is to buy a spare phone on the same network and put the SIM in that.
