NetTutorial - Send/Recieve SMS on iPod touch through iMessage!
NOTE - This tutorial will be updated as needed!
Hello everyone! I have discovered a way to send and receive SMS messages through iMessages on a iPod touch running at iOS 5.1.1!
NOTE - Before you continue! YOU MUST BE JAILBROKEN! And it's recommended to be on a untethered jailbreak also!
Here's how you do it!
Part 1 - Getting a Google Voice Account!
First, before you can do anything, you need a Google Voice account. This will give you the ability to send/receive SMS! To sign up for a Google Account, go to accounts.google.com and click on "Create a free account" on the top-left.
After you've gotten a Google Account, go to voice.google.com ! And sign in to Google Voice. There, you will need to setup your Google Voice. I don't know if you require a Mobile Phone, but if you have one, I would add it.
Part 2 - Setting up iMessage for Google Voice
Now that you have a Google Voice, it is time to setup your iMessage for Google Voice! You will need to go to Cydia and add the source - SOURCE REMOVED DUE TO PIRATED SOFTWARE!
After you have added that source, search for SMS GV Extension.
MAKE SURE THE TEXT IS NOT BLUE! --YOU MUST PURCHASE THE APP!
Install that tweak.
Now, install another tweak called Springtomize 2 - iOS 5+!
Part 3 - Configuring Settings to use SMS
Now, after you've install Springtomize, go to Settings and go to the Springtomize Settings. Now, go to Capabilities. Turn Custom Capabilities to ON and make sure everything else is also set to ON!
Now respring your device by going to the Springtomize Settings Main Menu and taping reload on the top-right corner. MAKE SURE TO TAP RESPRING AND NOT RELOAD SETTINGS!
Now, go to Settings and tap SMS GV Extension. You need to make sure you have Check License set to on if you installed the XSellize Version. Now, type in your username and password under Google Voice Account. After you have done that, make sure Enable Send is ON. Now go to Receive Settings and turn OFF Offical GV app and turn ON Local Mail. Now backout until your at the Settings App.
Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars and tap Add Account. Then, tap Microsoft Exchange! Under email, put your full email address from the Google account you just made, and under Username and Password, put only the first part of your email and your full password! LEAVE DOMAIN BLANK! After you click next, you will be prompted with another box called Server. Type in m.google.com and tap next! Make sure all settings are on! And finalize that account! Now go to Fetch New Data and make sure it is set to Push! Go to advanced, and make sure the account you just created is set to Push!
Part 4 - The Final Steps
Now, your going to want to clear the Notification Center of Alerts from your Email. So go to Notification Center and disable the alerts except for Badge App Icon. Now, you should be set to text! Try texting a friend or your mobile phone and text them back! If you are able to send and receive texts, you have successfully completed the steps!
