Anyone know how to do this, or if it's even possible?
I broke the microsim out of my phone, thinking I would be clever and tape it back together and put it back in when I was done - little was I to know, that the edges of the microsim holder were too fragile...so now I can't use my sim in my phone.
So I figure, if I can at least send and receive sms's on the ipad, then I may as well just use that as a phone, except without being able to receive and make calls.

Any ideas?

Sadly the only solution I know of is Swirly SMS which is a JB app. I used it and it works fine (and it's free). But if you've updated to 4.2, the only JB at the moment is a tethered one which is apparently quite painful. I've updated to 4.2 but will reJB when a tethered one eventually emerges.
