Jailbroke Apple iPad 3G Sends SMS Message

MuscleNerd has been working away on his new Apple iPad 3G this weekend it seems. As well as him and the dev team launching the Apple iPhone OS 3.1.X and 3.2 untethered jailbreak, they also managed to get the Apple iPad 3G to send an SMS message.

There is no GUI for this though and right now it is only working via command line, but either way it’s still a great accomplishment indicating that next in line is phone calls.

The SMS couldn’t be sent over the AT&T network though as there seems to be some block on the AT&T micro SIM sending messages. Instead, a T-Mobile SIM card was chopped up and made in to a micro SIM and this SIM was used to send the messages.

The video below shows the progress although it is a little blurry. The image just below shows exactly the messages sent to an iPhone.

Hopefully an application will be built and launched that brings a fancy GUI allowing users to send text messages although if the block is due to restrictions on the AT&T deal, it might mean putting another AT&T SIM card in the iPad, or switching to T-Mobile.
