    No, there is no jail break (yet) for an iPad on iOS 6.x. Stay tuned to this thread for the latest news on that topic: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=89458

    There are plenty of free apps in the App Store. And, a lot of the paid apps offer Lite versions (or ad-supported) so that you can try them out to see if you wish to upgrade to the paid versions. I know that's what you mean, right? Because getting paid apps for free any other way is piracy and we don't condone that here as piracy (and any discussion of it) is against out rules - and illegal.

    If your Optimus has a hot spot feature (and your carrier allows it) you should be able to activate the hot spot - that'll create a WiFi signal your iPad can see.

    Sorry, but I don't know about SMS programs. Hopefully, others will chip in...

    Ok thanks yes that's what I meant trial run of the program before buying the full one
    The SMS is for sending text messages to cellphones or emails.

    Some apps have a free version and a paid version. The free version allows you to experience some of the features included in the paid version. Not all paid apps have a free version, though.

    Most USB ports don't provide enough power to do more than trickle charge an iPad while it's asleep or turned off. There's not enough power to activate the charging icon. For best charging; use the supplied charger, plugged into a wall socket.

    You can't send SMS's with iPad. You can't call with it either. These two go together...

    What kind of signals you need to send from your Optimus? Bluetooth won't work.

    I guess you need to do a research I was told to use text now and I does work for sending text message I was looking for a simpler SMS proggie.and there is another one that you can make phone call with it. What I didn't like was it wouldn't let you delete the message after it was sent.

    Well, it might be called 'SMS' but it's not the real thing.
