It’s always a pleasure to speak with another iPad owner! I don’t need to mention how amazingly versatile and functional it is as I’m sure that you have already experienced it! May I ask what error message are you getting when you are trying to send a text message? Are you using a 3rd party messaging app or are you using the stock messaging app. Also, what make and model device are you sending the messages to? The information that edgarrios stated is a great start on how to troubleshoot this issue. If you are still experience issues with sending texts from your iPad then please advise as I am eager to assist!
