Native (but very primitive!) SMS through iPad 3G baseband
The iPad 3G is only a few days on the market, and already dev team members have jailbroken it. We can expect a public release soon.
Meanwhile, MuscleNerd just tweeted he was able to send an SMS using the iPad baseband. He had to use a T-Mobile SIM, but only because the AT&T SIM that comes with the iPad doesn't have an SMS plan attached to it. If it did, there's a solid chance it would send just fine.
This is early on, but a very cool mod - sending SMS from the iPad. I'm betting we'll see a jailbreak software released in the coming future to do this well, if not actually porting MobileSMS.app to work on the iPad. I doubt that'd be the case, since the graphics are only for iPhone. Either way - go jailbreak crowd..

Don't really see the point of this. If you want proper SMS, get a Google Voice account and use it with GV+ on jailbroken iPad 3G. Push + GV = Win.

I would kill to see one of you fanboys struggling to hold your ipad up to your face and make a call

iPhones Skype works well.
Even with a Bluetooth piece in my ear so it's probably doable

Actually it could be very easy to port it since apple's apps are programatic and are set to [UIScreen mainScreen] we just add 2 to the UIDeviceFamily in the info.plist. I did it with my app to port it and it worked fine on ipad with a few tableviews but even the MainWindow.xib didn't cause any problems.

Sending SMS via either T-Mobile OR AT&T, which you have to pay for, is dumb. Send SMS via Google Voice, which is completely free, is smart. Lets just get the iPad jailbroken and get a nice Google Voice SMS frontend GUI going that we can pin to the home bar on the iPad and we'll be set.
