    I guys, I need some help.

    What are the correct iMessage settings on both the iPhone and iPad so that messages can be sent and read on both devices. If my fiancée sends a text from his iPhone can I read it on my iPad as well as my iPhone?

    Cheers
    Scotty

    I just have my iCloud's account turned on. Question to you. Does your camera take fuzzy looking pictures?

    Hi Sam. The camera on the iPad is not as good as on the iPhone. However for some reason the pics I take now are much better quality than they used to be when I first bout the iPad. Not sure why. But the quality is not that great.

    They both need to have the same email address set for receive at. Then the sender should use that email address to send iMessage and it will appear on both iPhone and iPad.

    In ios 6, they are adding the ability for this to work with your iPhone number, which will make it a lot easier/better.

    Is the sender using that email address in their contacts to contact you?

    I'm at a lost then. If the emails are the same then idk. Good luck! Trying going to the apple website and do a live chat. It's a lot faster and easier than going to the store.
