Interesting, I had my iPad with me last few trips and I dont recall a problem; but then I dont recall if I actually used the iMessage feature.

I find it interesting that SueCates FT worked which is closer to a VOIP than iMessage (which is basically WiFi texting). SueCate did you try the iMessage and it didnt work? "The only thing that worked..."

NOTE: iMessage works only between iOS5 devices

I have texted USA to Belize with my kids (who have iPhones), and have little trouble, but i cannot recall whether the texts went thru as imessage or regular SMS. Works real well the last few years....

Tried iMessage and Skype and didn't work. But faced timed with my parents some delay but still worked. We have Comcast as our provider At home downloaded their app and texted using my home phone # from the iPad.

Hi SueCate, An experiment for the future for sure. Skype, I understand why it didnt work, iMessage not so much. Were you iMessaging to another iOS5 device?

I just left there and was using my imessage all the time to my kids' iphones in the states. apple to apple uses wifi and not the phone line, so it's free. facetime worked sometimes, when not too many people were on the internet at the same time, I assume.
