    Hi,

    I'm new to the whole tablet thing, however I was wondering if a (compatible) 3G dongle would enable my tablet to send and receive SMS?

    If so, do I need extra software, or would that be from the manufacturer of the dongle?


    Regards,


    mdel.

    Personally I use Google Voice for SMS on my tablet. I am not sure if GV is rolled out in your area or not, but there are other SMS apps in the Play Store. Viber is another option.

    Thanks guys.

    Musing: The link is helpful, but not specifically for my query ( thanks - it was helpful overall though!)
    Frederuco: Unfortunately, Google Voice is not going to happen in Australia any time soon - our mobile prices are ridiculous compared to most countries ($20 a month to lease a virtual mobile number, for example).

    All I want to know is if SMS (real SMS - not fake 'free SMS' apps) is possible on a tablet by the use of a dongle. It seems that this is an uncommon request.

    If anyone else has some ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
