    Wifi ipad and texts

    Hi

    I have a wifi only iPad can I send text messages from it ?

    I would think that because it doesn't have a sim card I cannot send text messages to other mobile phones but what about iMessages to other iPhones ?

    Is there a way to send messages to both?

    There are several third party providers who offer text services via their websites - but the availability depends on which country you're in.

    You can send Imessages to other I-device users provided they have upgraded to IOS 5 also.

    I have an Android phone, and use an app on it Called Lazy Droid which sets the phone up as a mini web Server, and presents the Lazy Droid desktop on my wi-fi only Ipad. This enables me to receive and send SMS texts using my Ipad.

    Text free has been the best app I could find for sending text from the ipod touch doubt it would be any different for the ipad.
