    I updated both iPhone 6 and iPad mini to 8.1 and I still can't send texts from my iPad. What am I doing wrong?

    Go to settings general handoff and set it there on your phone

    Is it necessary for the phone to be connected to the network to receive sms ?

    I am about to travel international and will not have local network over there,
    I can receive the iMessage when I am connected with data.
    However, will I receive sms as well ??

    it's a text message forwarding feature.

    therefore u need ur iphone to actually "forward" ur text.

    just confirmed: u dont need it to be in the same network!

    ----------

    Text forwarding doesnt need Bluetooth.

    Text forwarding has nothing to do with handsoff.
