    Is SMS messaging available natively on the iPad. I am getting SMS messages from my 3G service provider so there is obviously something there to handle them but there doesn't seem to be any function I can find to respond to them or to compose new ones. Have I missed something?

    There is no app available for the iPad that can display a received SMS message or compose a new one *directly* - i.e. using the native iPad 3G functionality. There are third-party indirect SMS messaging facilities that host text messaging on their company servers.

    Well there is something native on it because I have no SMS app and my iPad v1 3G which was bought SIM free and to which I then added the SIM is displaying blue pop up boxes looking just like an iPhone SMS alert with SMS messages from the provider. So clearly there is some SMS functionality in there. So the question is how much and is it accessible for other purposes?

    I'm interested in this too.

    Who is your Service Provider? Have you contacted them about a possible facility?

    Its t-mobile and no I haven't contacted them as usually tech support is not that savvy on oddball questions like this IME.
