    Hi there...have a look in your settings to see what email you have listed to receive and send iMessages.

    Go to Settings > iMessages > Send & receive ...

    ...check to see what you have set there.

    Also, make sure that your iMessage is turned "ON" when on that page. See the pic:

    I am moving this to the help section.

    @skimonKey. Thanks. But when I navigated to settings and then to message, I didn't find the option to turn on or off, neither did I find the option for send/receive. I only found the option to enter apple ID and password.

    That's really strange that you don't see what I see on my iPad. Can you take a screen shot?

    Owomano--I edited your pic to remove your email, I doing so the pic came out a bit blurry. However, I see what you mean. Do you by chance have any other apple IDs that you use? Do you have your restrictions on? Also, have you tried to do a reset of your iPad? Sometimes, that immediate fix can help it jump start solving the problem.

    To do a reset is to hold down the power button and the home button at the same time, until the iPad shuts off.

    You may even want to do a reset from your settings:

    Settings>general>RESET ALL SETTINGS. If you do this, you will need to log in again on all things that require it.
