I means ,im using sim card but im unable to recieve sms on my real number (number i using on ipad)
You may have missed the fact that
the iPad is not a telephone.
I have a reverse question: can I send a SMS message from iPad?
The sim card is not designed for iPad and carrier requires to send an SMS monthly ordering a data plan (this is a prepaid card). A not convenient solution is to take out microSIM card and insert it into a Phone to send an SMS and to extend my data plan.
But it would be nice to send an SMS directly from iPad.
Is it possible?
SMS must be sent from the number associated with the microsim card. So I can't send sms messages from Textie or other free SMS message providers.
Is your iPad jailbroken? If so, there's a 'phone app for the iPad - it was covered in the News section of the Forum recently. But, for a non-jailbroken iPad there are no 'native' SMS apps.
SwirlySMS for iPad 3G is an excellent jailbreak app which enables full SMS capabilities on your iPad 3G. Obviously this is only good for the iPad1 today, but when the iPad2 is jailbroken soon, it should also work there...
A word of warning however, if you do not have a SMS bundle on the SIM agreement then you will pay full network rates per message. On my iPad that's 10p per message... For that reason, and also the fact that fragmenting my SMS between iPhone and iPad is not desirable to me, I tend not to use it much!
No.. mine is not jailbroken. Tim, this is an iPad2 forum
And yes.. I've seen that info about Phone app.. Unfortunately - we'll need to wait while iPad2 gets jailbroken.
Thanks for a tip!
Yep.. I don't have SMS bundle on the SIM agreement. Just the data plan. But to send a single SMS monthly to extend my Data Plan - not a big deal even at higher SMS price.
Anyway.. let's wait until iPad2 JB.
