    Yes you Can! I use it all the time now on my wifi only Ipad2. Good for sending pictures and video clips too :)

    As garanth said, yes you can. You have to have a WiFi connection of course and remember iMessage only works between iDevices (iPad, iPhone, iPod).

    Enjoy!

    So here's my issue: I have imessage verified on a new email address, ipad wifi only (iOS5). My iphone is still 3gs on 4.3.3 and since I will have a 4s in a couple of weeks so I'm not going to bother to upgrade to iOS5.
    So when I select in imessage from my contacts this friend who's on imessage too, a little blue cloud is next to his name so that's ok. And there it stops, when I push send, nothing happens. He on the other hand can't reach me at all since he doesn' see me, in imessage. What am I missing?????
    to summarize:
    me: Ipad2 on iOS5 iMessage on
    he: ditto AND iPhone 4 on iOS5 iMessage on

    Problem solved itself two hours later, it must be indeed an Apple server problem, as was suggested by some.

    Sorry if I'm sounding dumb, do you need a message service such as an iPhone as I don't but it still won't let me send to an iPhone using a number??

    iMessage only works between Apple's "iDevices" (iPad, iPhone, iPod). Otherwise you'll need to use SMS/text messaging or send an email like normal. Then of course, there's old-fashioned calling! ;)

    All the devices must have been upgraded to IOS 5 for the IMessage to work which shows in blue. Regular texting is in green.
