newbie here Android & IOS SMS problems
I am a complete Android newbie.
I just got a Android tablet that is WiFi only but I still have an iPhone for my primary phone.
The tablet is running 4.1.1.
Hangouts is the default messaging app correct?
I am not able to sms anyone.
how can I cross platform sms?
Also if possible is there a way to receive the same sms on the tablet and IOS as I use both devices?

Welcome to the forums!
1. SMS, Normally done over the cell radios which you do not have on the tablet. Because you are talking about cross platform, it may be difficult, if even possible. You can try to set up maybe Google Voice on your iPhone and tablet, but I doubt it on the iPhone's part.
2. Hangouts is more an instant messaging app. So if your friends are on G+, then it shouldn't be that big of a deal.
While you are trying to use both platforms, I just don't think what you want to do can be done. For the most part, you need to make sure that Google voice (or any other 3rd part sms app) can be installed on both platforms.
