    Hi,

    I updated my touchpad to 3.0.4 yesterday and was happy to see I was able to connect it to my iPhone 3G. I can call, consult my contacts, etc. but I can't manage to send a text message.

    When I try to send a text message to a cell phone, it says I need to connect the touchpad to a phone but that's already done. The message hasn't been sent.

    Anyone got a clue?

    Thanks

    Hey - does this mean you can also now use your iPhone as a wifi hotspot for the TP? I have an iphone 3GS - with unlimited data - would love to know.

    I have my doubts about wifi hotspot
    Maybe over bluetooth, haven't tried that yet

    Hi
    With my iPhone 4 I'm able to place phone calls using the touchpad on 3.0.4 but can't send SMSs it always popup a message saying that it needs to be connect to a phone.
    About Internet tethering I'm also able to use it with my iPhone4 personal hotspot option via wi-fi even when I was at 3.0.2 firmware. With 3.0.4 it also works fine.
    Cheers

    I believe like my Blade, the iPhone does not have MAP.
    you can say that again :-) lol

    Thanks lorro,
    My mistake was with the TP. In the pairing mode of the TP it states that it try to pair with audio. In the drop down menu it is different type of devices to pair with. So of course I choose phone.

    Ok, so after you pair up the phone with the TP what can u do?

    You can basically only use the TP as a bluetooth speakerphone. The text functionality is still limited to the Pre 3 only.

    Why wouldn't I just use my iPhone's speakerphone? I don't see any point to this?

    when phone is across the room and you are using your tp, not that often but definite cool points.

    does tethering require a plan? Officially yes but jailbreak for ios and root for android fixes that

    if you have a phone that supports Bluetooth MAP then you can text as well. My work BB9800 performs flawlessly. Its one more reason for me to pick up my TouchPad. I can answer texts and phone calls without carrying around my phone around the house with me. Definitely a big plus, but I guess Apple will add it next year or two and it will be revolutionary...oh and magical ;-)
