These are kind of mutually exclusive. Some mobile GSM phones can do GSM 
multiplex (so SMS and data connections can work at the same time) but I don't 
know about a good working implementation.
Voice-connection via bluetooth can be done using alsa, AFAIK, depends on the 
phone if this can be done in parallel.
Anyway, in the best case (means capable hardware), there is no need to do this 
in one software.
BTW: SMS functionality is better integrated in PIM software.
