    Swirly MMS is a great app but pretty much useless if you don't plan on keeping your device. None of their licenses are device transferable. It's ridiculous. All other apps when purchased can be used on any other device as long as it's registered. But nope not Swirly.

    definitive and nnguyen04:

    What this application does is pretty much be an iPad equivalent of the iPhone's Messages app. By that I mean it uses your carrier/cell phone SIM & non-iPad-only plan to SMS or MMS to other cell phones and devices. It is useless on a WiFi-only iPad.

    This is primarily for people who are not using the official iPad plans on their iPads. For example people who are SIM-swapping between their iPhone and their iPad, or anyone using a SIM provisioned for SMS/MMS.

    That said, I think $12 is way too expensive for an app like this. BiteSMS is looking into making a compatible version of their app that should work the same way, and they should still be free via ads. Add in the 'not device transferable' comment, and there's two reasons people should wait for a better/cheaper solution.

    Now once people figure out how to do actual cell phone calls on iPads, that'll be interesting. That app might be worth a good amount of money. iPad is now a full featured large-screen iPhone. Ha

    I take the sim from my iPhone 4. Come on guy, it's not rocket science. Or I can get a number added to my family plan for 10 bucks a month with unlimited text on it. No Internet and send text from it and tether with mywi for Internet. I can even add Internet for 30 bucks. So 40 bucks for Internet and text, just tell them it's for an iPhone 4 and they will give me a sim for the iPad and I'll be hooked up.

    You probably didn't configure the mms server for AT&T. Use your head man. They put a walk through up on their site. Did you even read about the software first? They showed pictures of them configuring the mms server... Damn dude, there are pictures in this thread about it lol

    Textnow shows a text coming from an email address. That sh1t is ghetto, lol. It by no means the same thing. This sends natively through your carrier, with your phone number.

    Text+ is for USA only, SwirlyMMS for iPad3G is worldwide.

    And Apple still say you cant send SMS/MMS on iPad. LOL
