    If send an iMessage from my iPad to an iPhone, and the iPhone isn't connected via 3g or WiFi. Will the message be recieved as a text or will it wait for the phone to be connected to WiFi/3g

    Thanks

    It will have to wait till you get into a Wifi zone.

    Yes, if the other phone has iOS 5.x, they will receive your iMessage as a text. If they don't have iOS 5 (or have iMessage turned off), then they'll receive your text as a regular text through their carrier. The phone only has one testing app, so all texts go through it, whether they are "regular" texts or iMessages.

    This messaging service is available only for the iPhone. If we have an iPhone then can talk with other iPhone user by use of 3G or Wi-Fi. This iMessages are totally cost free only for iOS 5.

    iMessage works perfectly well on ANY IOS 5 (or IOS6) enabled device including iPad, and iPod Touch, as well as the iPhone. It is also included in the latest OSX Mountain Lion so you can also iMessage to your Mac.

    The point of it is that it allows communication between Apple devices, not just the iPhone! :)

    OK I thought a text was sent to a phone# (which will show as Green Bubble) and an Imessage was sent to an email address (which will show up as a blue bubble)? but both will show on and an Iphone and only Imessages will show up on and Ipad. inorder for the IPhone to receive imessage it has to be turned on otherwise it will be received as a text.

    Yes, you are right. iMessage allow to communication between the Apple device that allow us to transfer photos, video, text, contact info, group messenger over the Wi-Fi or 3G. iMessages are permeable by the message application on the all Apple devices.
