    Hoi,

    i have seen the video where a SMS Message was send via console on a jailbroken iPad.
    Is (or will) there be a cydia App that? Does anybody know more about it? I'd like to use that cause typing on the iPad is much more easier than on an iPhone or another mobile Device.

    Thnx

    As far as I understand it, the SIM you have from AT&T will not allow SMS messages cause you do not have a real phone number for the messaging service to use. AT&T decicded not to include a real phone number associated with ESN to prevent users from being able to make phone calls from the iPad.

    If anyone knows a way that does not include changing carriers, please speak up.

    Officially sending it through AT&T? No, not right now.

    You can, however, use applications like TextNow + Google Voice to do so.

    Well, the SIM card that AT&T supplied with the iPad does have a phone number though... Wait, never mind. It was a data number and not exactly a phone number.

    Isn't Google Voice still by "invitation only"?
