    Default 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.

    i'd imagine people walking around with iPad suitcases and bluetooth headsets permanently in their ear, or while at work

    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.

    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.
