I have a new iPad2 with WiFi and Verizon 3G service.

    You can not send texts from the ipad2- you need a phone. However... when ios 5 is released you will be able to text other apple ios devices.

    Depending on what you mean by text messages.


    You could install google voice and use that.  It is meant for the iPhone but you can touch the 2x button in the bottom right of your screen to increase the size.  Not the best but an option.


    Also, TextNow app in the app store will allow you to send text messages as well.  It is ad supported but it works.  I use it on my wifi iPad 2.
