    Hi Rebecca--you can either use a person's phone number or their apple ID or associated email they assigned to receive and send iMessages to.

    I am going to move this to the Help section for further assistance. You currently placed this question in the Poll section, which it is not.

    Thanks,

    The easiest way to use iMessage is to add the recipient to your contacts. You can then select them by name, instead of Phone number of email address. As noted by Skimonkey above, the parties at both ends have to set up whichever email addresses (and phone number) they want to receive at. There is no apparent limit to the number of email addresses you can set up, but each will need registering with Apple (except your AppleID. That's already done.)
    Apple Equipment (so far) rMBP 15"; iPad 2 (iOS 7.1); iPhone 5s (iOS 7.1); iPhone 4 (iOs 7.1); AirPort Extreme; Airport Express; AppleTV

    Hold in mind iMessage on the iPad will only work with other registered iMessage users. You can't send to just any old phone. It is not SMS.
