    So I have the 3G iPad 2 and I use textfree to message my friends but there's some things I don't like about it like not being able to make received picture messages larger. Is there something I could get through cydia or something that would relay messages through iMessage instead? It's a longshot I know but I figured it was worth asking.

    Not without excessive hacking and a non-iPad SIM.

    I really like this idea. I do alot of CL/BP selling and think that GV, GV sms tweak and BiteSMS would be a perfect collaboration with no native carrier SMS to bug it up. I dont like to use my carrier cell number to give to strangers.
