    SMS text with ipod touch 5g?
    i'm probably going to get the new ipod touch.

    I've got a question regarding SMS text apps.

    I'm going to England this spring for a little over a month. Last time i went i purchased a cheap phone and topped up minutes on it. It was probably around $40 bucks total. I still have the phone so i would just have to top it up again. I used the phone to meet up with friends and relatives by texting etc.

    This time however i'm thinking i could save the $40 and just text with the iPod Touch through wifi. But i have some questions about this:

    -would i be able to SMS text other peoples phones or only ppl that have the same app?

    - what if i'm not at a wifi location and someone texts' me? Will it queue up for when i do get a wifi connection?

    You will only be able to text people with the same App.

    I would recommend TextFree for the texting app and it should work as long as you are on wifi.

    The exception to this is iMessage. You send a text from your iPod Touch and it will go to other iPhones as SMS-style messages (not truly SMS but no other software required).

    Of course, this presumes that you'd only want to talk to people with iPhones/iOS devices, and they won't be able to text you back unless you remain in Wi-Fi.
