    I just bought a new iPad mini w/retina.
    It is 16gb with WiFi only.
    Will iMessage work on this unit?
    If so, how can I set it up and actvate it?

    Thank you,
    Mark

    Yes it will work.

    You will need to go to your iPad settings/iMessage and activate it by switching it on. It will then ask for you to sign in with your Apple ID and your password to verify it.

    Once you have done that, you can iMessage from your iPad to anyone that also has an idevice.

    Hope that helps-and welcome to the forum! :)

    I hope we are talking about the same thing.

    Did you go to your iPad settings / iMessage and turn it on? Did you see this?

    Have you already signed in? Please tell us what you have done. It is difficult to discern what you have done already based in your posts. In addition, just checking my iPhone...I can scroll down to get to SMS and mms. I do not have that feature on my iPad/wifi.

    Please see this link regarding MMS and SMS: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3529

    skimonkey,

    Sorry for the confusion. I did sign in already. However, when I try to send a text, I get delivery failure message.
