    Hi everyone,

    I got an old iPhone 3G which I gave to my mum and I have been busy looking for a Text Push service, like Whatsapp which is not available anymore on iOS 4.3-previous devices, for sending messages over the internet.

    I tried to make Whatsapp working, jailbreaking and changing the CFBundleVersion, as suggested on some forums, but with no luck.

    Is there anybody who knows an text messaging app? I have an iPhone 4 so it doesn't have to be necessarily cross-platform.
    A few years ago I knew a service called pushme.to but it looks like it has been shut down.

    Any help appreciated!

    Is there any reason the stock one won't work?

    He means something like iMessage. iMessage is only available on 5.x.x and above. The iPhone 3G only goes up to 4.2.1. Therefore, it does not have a stock IM client.
