hey guys, I've been hearing from some people that you can send text msgs from the nexus 7, which would be cool to have.

I downloaded GO SMS, and I entered my information and what not, and then it asks me to bind my mobile phone number, but everytime i do, it says verification failed. how the hell do I bind it? has anyone had this problem before?

I have been using DeskSMS/TabletSMS. Rarely use my phone to text now unless I'm out and about.

Is it possible to use these texting apps with an ordinary mobile number (I.e. not a smartphone)? I find my phone so small that I always struggle with texts...

Word of warning, it will stop working after 14 days unless you pay for it $3.99 for a year. At first I thought it was a steep price to pay but it really is worth it since both devices do not need to be on the same network. For example your phone can be connected by 3g and the N7 by wifi and it will still work.

I very much doubt it. Unless you are in the States and set up a Google Voice account.
