So... you're looking for an app that can send data without having any access to any kind of network?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Yeah, I get it, just wanted to make sure I understand.

No, its not possible. You need a way for the message to get from your device to another, and that means having a network connection of some sort.

Is highly unlikely if it has no wifi or 3g how will it transmit the data?

Its like saying "I want to listen to music without any medium to play it on" by putting a cd up to my ear.

Not sure what you mean by "hack" but you can use a MiFi device to access a 3g network and send texts etc

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

This is a weird thread....

Someone wants to send texts with no network connection then want to hack a 3G network with no device...

Discussing something like that is a violation of forum policy.

Perhaps you should read it before posting again as we do not allow any discussion of illegal activities.

Its using someones network without their permission or any benefit to them in terms of payment for what you use.

Ok, that's not going to help you. If you "dont wanna read a bunch of stuff" that can potentially help you then you should probably just not bother posting again.

You said:

Which sounded like you meant that you wanted to use a pay service without paying for it. If that's not what you meant, then you need to learn to be more clear when you type things out.

I have heard of no 'free' 3G service out there.
