The iPad 3G can’t send text messages except yes it can.

John Moe May 3, 2010

Two criticisms I heard about the iPad were that you couldn’t monkey around with it and develop your own software and that you can’t send text messages.

These guys beg to differ. The hacker group known as the iPhone Dev Team have figured out how to send text messages on an iPad. Oh, it’s not easy and it doesn’t look very good but it’s happening.
