    IMessage only works between iPhone iPad or iPod devices and both parties should have enabled wifi.

    I have the same problem...although I can use 3G at my house (can't get 4G where I am)....and can talk to my husband on his iPhone with my iPad3, but no one else, even my son, who has an iPad3. Won't go thru.
