    there are a few ways. first off is sms touch. it uses the email app to send a recieve the txts. then there is infinite sms. this does require a gmail account tho but this app is more like the actual sms app, where u send and recieve from the app itself.. hope those helped. both are available in the app store.

    text free unlimited in the app store is the best. if its jailbroken then have the wifi running when your on the lockscreen and have T.F.U running in the background and you will always know when you have a txt. just like a phone.

    I heard there were two problems with TextFree Unlimited...

    You still have a limit of like 50 messages.
    The sender's address changes.

    Are these true?

    You can send/receive FREE texts with mail.app if you know the person number and what cell phone provider they have and if you have a working email account

    Simply enter the person you want to text's phone number followed by the correct extension based on what cell phone provider they have

    For Verizon Phone Numbers: number@vtext.com
    For Alltel Phone Numbers: number@message.alltel.com
    For AT&T Phone Numbers: number@txt.att.net
    For T-Mobile Phone Numbers: number@tmomail.net
    For Virgin Mobile Phone Numbers: number@vmobile.com
    For Sprint (PCS) Phone Numbers: number@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    For Sprint (Nextel) Phone Numbers: number@page.nextel.com
    For Boost Mobile Phone Numbers: number@myboostmobile.com
    For Cricket Phone Numbers: number@sms.mycricket.com

    Those are just the common cell phone providers i know

    There's alot more, but their very tedious and annoying to type out, so i just posted some of the common cell phone providers

    Of course all you have to do is insert their number where it says number and add the correct ending for the cell phone provider

    They can reply to the message you sent them and it will be just like receiving an email

    THIS IS ABOSULUTELY FREE!

    BTW, this is called an SMS Gateway - Look it up on Wikipedia if you want to know the extensions for every other cell phone provider that I have not listed here

    Note: standard message rates still apply to the person you are texting

    maybe add an iphone's baseband chip to the ipod, with a little tweaks and fixes.. voila
    or in my country, I use a web based SMS to recieve and send or try some of the free unlimited text apps
