iMessage on iPhone 3G possible? Jailbreak?

Can I get iMessage working on an old iPhone 3G? Is it possible somehow using a jailbreak? Was hoping to use the 3G as an iPod touch (no phone) for a kid and was hoping to be able to use imessage. I tried searching but didn't get an answer. Thanks!

whited00r probably will make 'iMessage', but it will just probably allow you to chat on networks like Jabber, Facebook, Skype, send emails, and other free txt apps (Like Whatsapp)
