    Sorry if there is another post similar to this but couldn't find one that answered this question.

    Is there a tweak/hack that allows my iphone to forward its texts to my wifi ipad?

    I dont want my ipad to be a phone but i just want to receive and reply to texts while im on my ipad.

    Any idea?

    Not really. There's a SMS app called SwirlyMessage which you can download through Cydia (it's $12) that will let your iPad receive txts if you have the 3G model and your SIM has SMS messages available, but unfortunately there's not anything that will forward them from an iPhone as far as I'm aware of.

    If you have a Google Voice account you can use the GV Mobile + app in conjuction with the Prowl app to receive texts on a iPad. I use this method to get them on my 32gb Wifi. Check out this link to see how to set it up. http://googlevoice.ub3rk1tten.com/voicegrowl/
