the primary reason people wanted to have a webOS phone with their TouchPad was because 1) webOS phones and the TP were designed around eachother, and 2) the cross-text messaging and phone calling ability.

this thread was first made by myself to show that it was possible, but slowly turned into a method to try it for yourself.
on another subject - compared to the developers here on the forum, my scripting abilities are somewhat limited. it seems the problem here is coding that wasnt written or designed around the text messaging and calling capability for the TouchPad. the freeTether app doesnt have a full TP update as far as I know.
in my opinion: until official support by the freeTether developer(s) is given, we're somewhat at a stalemate with this. (or even a much widerspread support of little people like most of us.)
I apologize for the frustration and delay some of you may have, but there's simply not enough support behind this yet.
I have not scripted or written code for anything webOS, but I am involved with other coding languages, and understand how coding works in general. with enough support and resources, this may eventually be bug-free for all phones with a modern bluetooth profile.
but heres my opinion on what will eventually come of this - Android is open-source and because of that, all modern devices should be able to support this soon enough.
as for iOS, and Blackberry devices; im not too sure on them being bug-free because of they're mostly closed-source. but a workaround could be figured out.
and for dumbphones like my own, it may always be hit and miss just because how varied they are.
