    I have a iPad MiniR (Verizon model) and had been getting all of my text messages that went to my iPhone on it.
    But now only iMessages are coming through.

    I think my settings got changed and I don't know what I did.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    You can only receive iMessages on your iPad. Not SMS.

    Using the native Messages app? I didn't think receiving SMS messages was possible on the iPad using the native Messages app.

    I didn't think it was possible at all. Are there apps that will allow me to get SMS messages that come to my phone on my iPad? I'm speaking of non-iMessage ones....

    Install VZ Messages from the Appstore and enter your mobile phone number that you want to receive SMS. I use this to connect to friends and family that don't have Apple products. SMS sent through VZ Messages will not show in iMessages but the reply will. Have fun.
