    Turning on telephony on iPad 4.2?

    Now that the iPad and iPhone use the same codebase has anyone tried turning on text messaging and all the telephone options in the preference file to see if it works?

    I think this feature will come when te Ipad 2 arives.. Because apple cant stay behind.. And when the ipad 2 gets it we will also get the update...


    .....This is all pure speculation....

    It's not quite as simple as it sounds
    Remember the firmware is still device specific and there are hardware differences despite the code base being the same. There has been some success sending SMS, but real SMS (via the carrier sim on a 3G device) needs the carrier to be on board too. Most iPad 3G contacts only have data. I'm sure we'll start to see some creative Cydia apps in the months to come though... Fingers crossed.

    Yes, you can use voice over IP (Skype) but not GSM telephony
