    Here's a little cool trick for those who have a jailbroken touch.

    If you have SSH installed go to
    system/library/coreservices/springboard.app
    and edit the N81AP.plist
    and add the following lines
    <key>sms</key>
    <true/>
    (you can also use iFile, if you don't have SSH)

    Reboot your iPod touch, and voilà! You have the SMS app!

    And if you restore your iPod touch from your iPhone backup, you will see your SMS on the app.

    couldn't resist

    BUT nice to hear SMS is possible on the iPod touch. But i will wait how expensive the iPhone will be when it arrives on O2 in Germany before i get an iPod touch instead. Hopefully I will not need such tricks.

    But thank you for sharing.

    This is good news, I just got a touch for my girlfriend because of facetime. It will be great to be able to text on it also

    How would it send out or receive the text since it has to go through the 3G network or at least it requires a cellphone number ?

    You can't. I believe the OP was just saying how you can get app on the Touch (for fun). You can probably compose messages but it probably will crash if you try to send.

    LOL. This makes you hacker of the month. (Not like anyone else deserves it :p )

    I've used other apps that feed from the SMS app to 'send' stuff from my touch. Pointless. Fun...but pointlesss.

    Does this work on the iPad 3G? And actually send/receive?
