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 did tether on 4g and was able to send a message to my phone and to hubbies phone but not to my own @me I
I guess because the iPad uses it
Question is can I do FT?
