    Is there a simple sms app I can use on my jailbroken Ipad 2. Using my existing data plan ?
    I don't want / need free sms - just a simple normal sms app as we have in the Iphone ?
    It's easier to type on the larger keyboard of the Ipad.
    I tried Texplusgold but the sms appear to go but are not received.

    I've moved this to the Hacking section, where I think it will receive better attention.

    If you have a JB iPad then there is an app for the iPad that can send and receive SMS messages directly from the iPad. You'll see there are plenty of threads in the Forum that discuss this app with Member's views and comments.

    SwirlySMS for iPad allows a 3G iPad to send and receive text messages just like a normal phone.

    Sorry but neither of these apps work for me in TH.
    Unless, I'm doing something wrong .......
    For Ex , when I try to activate Swirly with my Mobile, it never confirms activation and when I send sms, they are not received.
    I am unable to figure out the Islaam one but that's no surprise.
    Anyone got a working simple sms app for Ipad ?

    swirlysms works fine for me here in india. i can send and receive sms instantly. are you sure you are using a normal micro sim which has both data and sms/voice facility? because if you are using an ipad specific sim then it will only have data facility

    oh and yes confirm it with your ipad sim no.

    the best thing about swirlsms is that it is free and it has swirlynet which means it will only use the sim account balance when it is not able to connect to a data network such as wifi or 3g. this is awsome!!
