    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for someone to tell me if they know how to send sms messages on the ipad by pressing the <enter> key. It would be very helpful so if you know a way feel free to let me know. Thanks in advance ;)

    What do you mean "by pressing the <enter> key"? You can't send an sms at all, out of the box at any rate. Do you mean an iMessage message? Or are you using some other app that sends sms? In iMessage, hitting <enter> just makes a new line.

    Hello,

    You can send an SMS or an iMessage using the new app in iOS5 called iMessage. The imessage is free to other iOS users, otherwise the message goes as an SMS according to your wireless providers messaging plan. A good (and brief) summary of this app by insanelygreatmac at:

    You can send SMS using 3rd party apps such as Skype, AIM for iPad or Yahoo Messenger. There are also websites that allow sending of SMS via the internet.

    See Yahoo! Messenger in the iOS App Store.
