    A non jail broken iPad cannot send or receive SMS ('text') messages directly - but there are several third-party apps available that host text messaging services on the company's web server.

    If you jail break your iPad, then there are a couple of third party apps that can directly send 'text' messages from the iPad.

    i use an app called 'Brilliant sms' on my unjailbroken ipad 2. works from my ipad to any mobile phone. you need to buy credit though, which is cheap.
