i just bought my iPad mini for 2 weeks or more which has been jail broken. So since I'm using a weekly prepaid data plan, I need to renew the data plan again and again for every week. Hence I wanna know if I can use iMessages in order to apply my data plan again which I need to send it to '28882'.

Is that possible to use iMessages, or if it does not allow me to do so, do you have any idea how to send text messages as if 'normal messages' to especially non-apple devices?

Any idea what other apps do I need to use?

Did you try to send an SMS to a friend with a non-Apple phone? – patrix Apr 23 '13 at 17:14
Yup, i did, most of my friends are android user samsung, HTC etc. and i dont know how to get whatsapp on my ipad mini. :/ – Linda Apr 24 '13 at 5:08
If sending SMS to others works, I would guess that sending SMS to 28882 should work as well. Or ask your provider, you won't be the only iPad user with this question. – patrix Apr 24 '13 at 5:20
