    Is it possible to imessage between an ipad 4 and ipod touch 5th gen with the same account and not get duplicate messages? If i send a message to my ipad while the wife is using it from my ipod it shows up on the ipad and ipod touch and vice versa. Or must each have there own seperate account?

    You can use the same account but you need a different email address in the Send and Receive field.

    Settings/Messages.

    Same applies for FaceTime.

    If you don't want messages to go to multiple devices, you can also set up iCloud accounts for each device but continue to use the same iTunes account to share apps.
