    I am totally new as I have never had an apple, iphone of ipad and would like to get maximum out of it.

    Why can't I send an sms via my sim card, that is through third parties? Is this an ipad limitation? I could do it on my note book but not now.
    Which is the best ipad equivelant app to microsoft office?

    AFAIK, unfortunately sending a SMS via the 4G hardware is 'disabled'

    Thanks.

    I would never have thought that in this day & age there would be such a limitation. I wonder whether this is something that apple might reconsider as surely it does not effect their service.
