Can xbee cellular also do transparent IO at same time

I have been using xbee series 1 for a long time to do simple wireless IO. Now, I hope to also add cellular for simple SMS “ticks”. If I bought the xbee 3’s, is it possible to alternate the radios and achieve this with just one xbee?

Transparent mode is supported on all XBee Cellular and XBee3 Cellular products, including sending SMS messages. See the following links:
