    I am planning a trip to Spain. Can anyone recommend a good app or program for texting from Spain to US. Does Google Voice work? I never texted before. I only have the WiFI version. Thanks

    You can go on several different carrier websites, and use a JavaScript form to send texts. Should work on IPad. Receiving? That's trickier, i'd think!

    Line 2. You can make phone calls on your iPad 2 now also. I use earphones so my calls are not on speaker! Has texting too First 30 days is free, then a small monthly fee. I use mine a lot and cut back my minutes on my carrier since I now use Line 2 most of the time.

    Whom do you want to call?

    If VoIP based calling is fine, than either Skype, Tango or Vtok (Gmail Video calling) will work.

    But I notice you have an iPad wifi, so without tethering will you not be able to make calls on the move.

    You can make phone calls from your iPad by using the app Line 2. You can also text from Line 2. I have it on my iPhone 4 also and it saves me lots of money on my bill. I just plug in my earphones, otherwise everything will be on speaker! The app has good videos for its usage, too. You can also record your own voicemail greeting, etc. Their main site is Virtual PBX: Hosted Small Business VoIP Phone Systems | Toktumi. Really like this app. I've had it about 6 months on my iPhone and then use it on my iPad 2 also. It's a hoot for me to hear my iPad ring! Enjoy!:)

    I have just tried to find line 2 in the app store and couldn't find it? Is it US store only?
