Currently, no.

O2 don't support SMS over wifi.

If people can message you on whatsapp ot iMessage though, it will work.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
