HTC Evo 4G

Steve bought an HTC Evo 4G with Virgin Mobile and he's having trouble with text messaging through Facebook. When his friend responds, it goes to his iPad, not his phone. Leo says that's probably because they're responding via iMessage. He'll have to delete his phone number from Facebook and then re-register the new one, even if it's the same number.

He'd like to get his text messages on his HTC Evo and his iPad. Can that be done? Leo says that probably not. Apple's getting around text messages via iMessage. The chatroom says he can try renaming the cell as a regular cell phone, not an iPhone, that may do it.
