Without an iPhone an iPad is not able to send or receive SMS/MMS texts. Those require a cellular telephone voice network connection, which no iPad is capable of.


You‘re restricted to internet messaging services only, so you and your non-Apple device recipients (those not able to use iMessage) can use Skype, Google Hangouts or another cross platform internet messaging service and app.
