    i use this to text for free using my Google voice number

    if you download the sms gv exntension from cydia to your ipad it will not work, because it was made for the iphone

    but with a simple ssh it will work

    first install sms gv extension from cydia

    now you can do this with ifile

    navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app

    and find the J1AP.PLIST file

    And in the capabilities section add

    now respring

    thats it

    sms gv extension should now work on your ipad 3 running ios 5

    i use this with bitesms to get quick reply & compose for my google voice number

    u also need the official google voice app for push notifications, thats free

    if you dont know what sms gv entension is for

    watch this


    sms gv extension alo works with imessage, so you can use bitesms to text with both your google voice number & imessage

    thanks to xXrkidXx from ifans

    So bite sms integrates google voice into your native messaging app now? Since when?

    Also, I'm pretty sure more people have google voice numbers than what's app installations, considering what's app doesn't give you your own number to make calls to and from any phone with.

    just downloaded and installed bitesms. It does not work with google voice. I have to have google voice to save my texts for work.
