    Default Using iPad plan with iPhone 4 - How to text?
    Hi, I am interested in purchasing an iPhone 4 in Australia (when it comes out) with one of the many iPad data plans. I will be able to call by subscribing to Skype out and Skype in, however, texting is an issue.

    I was wondering if there was any way (in Australia) to send and receive texts from the iPhone 4 with solely a data plan. The only requirement being that people need to be able to reply to a text with any other type of phone (i.e. to a phone number). I don't mind having to reply to messages through some-sort of other interface.

    I have not decided that I would do that yet, just thinking of the technicalities.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    You could use google voice, if its jailbroken use GVMobile.

    We don't have GV in Australia . Thanks though...

    I found this service. It is AUD$30 for 250 texts (and recipients can reply).

    2-Way SMS: Two-Way Text Messaging From TextMagic

    It seems a bit expensive though. Does anyone know of another 2-way texting solution?

    What about textfree from the app store. It works from data and you can even get a phone number. I use it to text my wife all the time wile I'm on wifi at work.

    Is there international support (i.e. can I get an Australian phone number?). I am currently travelling, so I don't have access to iTunes to look it up. How much does it cost?

    Just an update, I found a couple of other sites. I'm not sure if the second one is legit as they say they are free:

    Send Text Message From Computer
    Free Text Message - Send Free SMS
