Ohio ethics opinion on attorney use of text (SMS) messaging

Ohio has yet to specifically address cloud computing in its’ ethical opinions, but recently issued an opinion that demonstrates how attorneys are changing with the times and technology.
Specifically, the Ohio Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline held, in opinion 2013-2, that attorneys may solicit potential clients via text message without running afoul of ethical considerations, however, it also set forth conditions (the full text of the opinion is in the link above) in such solicitation that may well render it of little practical use; of course, many would argue that it is of little practical use regardless.
