    Is the concept of receiving texts on a touchpad from a pre minus (first gen pre) actually conceivable?

    I know you can make calls/accept them either way, but whats stopping me from texting from it? I'd appreciate it if someone could give me a 'how to' if it's possible

    Thanks

    The problem is that the Message Access Protocol (Bluetooth) isn't available prior to 2.2, which is only on the Pre 3 at the moment.

    Unfortunately, the Pre and TPad cannot share the text messaging functionality as they do phone calls.

    Here's hoping they decide to bring 2.2 to the Pre 2...One can hope anyways...

    No because touch to share uses NFC (near field communications), which is driven by new hardware as I understand it, so that'll only be available on the Pre 3

    This is all a shame. The Pre3 is DOA already right? Not coming out?
