    In another thread I shared we just went with a family share plan on AT&T for our data. So using my wifi only ipad 2 I've learned that iMessages don't go from the iPad when teathered (is that a word?) to my iPhone. Is this normal?

    Tether you iPad and send a message from iPad's iMessage to another iOS user. Mine failed twice. Goes from the iPhone. Goes from the iPad on wifi. Doesn't go from the iPad teathered to the iPhone for data.

    I guess because the iPad uses it
