doubt it, I've wanted this for a long time now. There are some JB apps that are said to do this but obviously iPad 2 being on 4.3 can't be JBen yet. I've tried a few of the apps and they didn't work anyway. I think I heard the HP Touchpad has something like this capability so maybe in iOS 5 Apple will bring it out to stay competitive.

Actually, there are a few apps that can do it. I just finished texting the daughter of a friend on her iPod Touch. As long as you have WiFi, you're good. I think I had her install TextPlus. It assigns you a new phone number that simply goes through their servers.

Text Plus Silver which was just updated yesterday actually does this. It will assign a 2nd phone number to your phone. Then you can use it on your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and when someone sends a text you will get it on all 3 devices and it will even sync the outgoing on all the devices too.
If I setup FaceTime using my email address on all devices it too works in parity. If someone calls me, my iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad will all ring, then I can answer it on any of those devices.

If it's AT&T, just email the text.
