    Hi Yolanda,
    It sounds like you may be having problems with your AppleID. This can be tricky. You might have two Apple ID's. If so, since you now have free support from Apple for your new Ipad, maybe you should contact them. I managed to get myself two Apple ID's. I finally got everything workable. You can't delete an Apple ID but you can assign the same password to both. An AppleId is assigned to separate Apple functions. If you have two, then you may have entered the wrong one.
    This is assuming you entered a correct AppleId and password. I think I would start by assuming I have only one AppleID and contact Apple.

    You can send message to your friend with APPLE ID in imessage. It is sent by internet, not by caarier sim card.

    Mine did that too, i turned off my ipad ( completely off, not just sleep mode) then turned it on, then tried activating again and it worked already.

    How do I register someone's phone for iMessage to work on IPad? I can text them from my IPhone, but it will not work on several people on the iMessage function on the IPad.

    They will have to register their email address or mobile number in settings to receive iMessages...you can't do it for them.

    Unfortunately, sending an iMessage to an Android phone will not work. You must be sending the iMessage to another Apple smart device (iPhone, iPad or iPod). While the iPhone can switch to using the carrier's text service, the iPad can't (cause it's not a cell phone :)). So, that message to the Android(s) will not go through - and they can't sign up for iMessage as it's Apple only.

    Your best bet is to find an app in the AppStore that will enable you to send text messages to phones. There are several (maybe even lots!) to choose from.
