    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    I saw your note about text apps for the UK and, yes, you're right - they're few and far between or non-existent. I'm sure you'll get some suggestions, though, from Forum members but - as you've pointed out - most of the existing apps only work in the US

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.

    'HeyWire' looks good. I couldn't work out, from the App Store, whether it was restricted to the US or not. It mentions a list of countries - but no European ones, yet elsewhere it says 'texting to the rest of the world'.

    We need someone who has tried it!! But it looks good - many thanks

    Tried heywire
    U can indeed text free to many countries but not Uk and Europe
    It does have many other features but all found elsewhere with STD social apps
    So no joy yet

    What I'd find irritating is that I receive 'txt' notes from orange, the ones that come up normally on iPhone and u cancel or reply (does not give u this option)
    So obviously capable of txt service as it stands

    Hi, I found Bocosoft , perhaps it will work? the app says it has problems with vodafone, but that was last updated in 2009. Hope this helps!
