Sms messaging explanation needed
I use both an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 for messaging.
On the iPad 2 iMessage is great if the other party has an iDevice, otherwise I only get to exchange texts with them on my iPhone. I understand that there are messaging apps that I can use from the App store, but I'm not sure they will allow me to accomplish my goal of being able to get text messages sent to my phone to show up on my iPad (even if from non-iDevices).
I don't mind using iMessage and another app on my iPad to do this, but it is unclear how another app will allow me to get messages on my iPad that are sent to me via my phone number (and not to my email address).
Can someone explain how this will work, and suggest apps that will solve the problem?
Thanks in advance!
