can you text?
Thinking about getting one for my munchkins since they did well with the little "starter" tablets santa brought them. A couple of their friends have ipads and can text from them. Can you do that from a xoom? Is is a downloadable app? Would I have to pay a monthly fee? Thanks for any help and/or suggestions.

Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. You can use Google Voice for texting, probably some others too.

as mentioned, you can use google voice, which is probably the best option. Or you can use the app called Syncsms, which syncs between the phone and tablet. A dropbox account is also required.

Google voice is great, you'll get your own number for free.
I also use Google Voice for texting combined with grooveip for voip (voice calling).
