I am a new user of the iPhone 4S. I am able to iMessage with other iPhones, but not iPads. We updated the OS, made sure the iMessage was turned on. All bubbles are blue next to email addresses, but message won't deliver. Can anyone help us?

Did everyone with an iPad go into Settings>Messages and enter their email address in the Receive At field?

We are not in the same location. Bur I asked her twice and she said yes.

When does this happen, when the iPad tries to send you an iMessage or the other way around? Or both.

Yeah, sorry, that was a stupid question. I've seen other people here with the same issue, between the iPad and iPhone.

That's ok, I am thinking it is something simple that we are missing. Just can't figure out what! ha

Turn it off and on again, both of you do the same thing. Also try restoring network settings, that can fix it too.

One tip for people having trouble sending from their iPad is to have them make sure they aren't typing the full message in the subject line.

May have nothing to do with this, but I've seen several people do it, already.

It's best to turn that off IMO. Texts are too short to require a subject line.

Some people don't even realize it's there and can be turned off! LOL
