    As garanth said, yes you can. You have to have a WiFi connection of course and remember iMessage only works between iDevices (iPad, iPhone, iPod).

    Enjoy!

    So here's my issue: I have imessage verified on a new email address, ipad wifi only (iOS5). My iphone is still 3gs on 4.3.3 and since I will have a 4s in a couple of weeks so I'm not going to bother to upgrade to iOS5.
    So when I select in imessage from my contacts this friend who's on imessage too, a little blue cloud is next to his name so that's ok. And there it stops, when I push send, nothing happens. He on the other hand can't reach me at all since he doesn' see me, in imessage. What am I missing?????
    to summarize:
    me: Ipad2 on iOS5 iMessage on
    he: ditto AND iPhone 4 on iOS5 iMessage on
    Alas no JB (yet) since I have a newly purchased iPad2 with 4.3.5. And I was so used to my jailbroken 3GS

    Problem solved itself two hours later, it must be indeed an Apple server problem, as was suggested by some.

    Sorry if I'm sounding dumb, do you need a message service such as an iPhone as I don't but it still won't let me send to an iPhone using a number??

    iMessage only works between Apple's "iDevices" (iPad, iPhone, iPod). Otherwise you'll need to use SMS/text messaging or send an email like normal. Then of course, there's old-fashioned calling!

    Enjoy!
    All the devices must have been upgraded to IOS 5 for the IMessage to work which shows in blue. Regular texting is in green.
