Actual SMS messages sent to your phone number from someone else's phone? No.

Yep, you can't. Even though the carrier gives you a "number" SMS messages are usually blocked. The only "text" message you can get are iMessages that are sent to you via your iCloud ID.

I wish we could get text messages on iPad. Annoying. Maybe there's app that forwards them?

OS X Mountain Lion will have many new features. Messages is one of them, which will support the iMessage service.

JSYK, iMessages is currently available for download as a beta. I will say, though, that it has been less-than-great on Lion. Even on my iPad, sometimes iMessages won't all come in, and they only show up on my iPhone. It's a great concept, so I hope they work out all of their bugs soon.

You can test it out now. No need to wait on Mountain Lion.

@Caliber26 Yes, I'm aware of that. I downloaded it as soon I knew that it was available for download
