TIP: If your phone screen works well enough, try enabling & configuring "wireless hotspot". This turns your phone into a wireless router -- allowing your tablet to connect to the internet using your phone's data plan.
This allows you to use your wi-fi enabled tablet (or eReader, iPod touch, old mobile phone, etc) to send and receive text messages while away from home.
Not sure how to do this? Ask here (I might know, depending on your phone make and model), send a tweet to @RogersHelps or call Rogers.
