    hey everyone,

    quick question:

    i have a ipad 2 16 gig wifi, no 3G. since apple announced iMessage (similar to BBM), what app do i use to use this function? I was doing some research and it said it connects automatically to your messaging. Since my Ipad isn't a phone, what app is this "messaging" app? Thanks!

    It will be available with iOS 5 in the fall, which is a good while away. I think what they are saying is that if you have an iPhone, the messages (text app) and imessages will be one in the same. As for the iPad, wait for iOS 5 to be released in a few months, update the iPad, and bam you should have the imessages app on there.

    It is just an instant messaging version of FaceTime.

    Which means like FaceTime it will probably work through a combination of phone number and email addresses, depending on your device and current internet connection.

    But it's speculation. We just don't have enough details yet. Since iOS 5 is already available to developers I'm sure we'll be seeing plenty of (wink, wink, I didn't tell you this) leaks over the next several days.

    If it's part of the non-disclosure agreement, I'd just as soon wait rather than have you risk Apple's displeasure. I'm not sure it still applies, since they've announced the product, but don't do anything you might regret. We can wait. :)

    the details i found regarding iMessage, indicates that it is automatic service and do not need any messaging app, and asks for an Apple iD

    What if I have an iPod Touch and no iPhone?
    Users with an iPod Touch can send/receive iMessages by using their Apple ID. You even have the option of changing your “Caller ID†from your phone number to your email address.​

    I'm having trouble as well. I have an ipad wi-fi (not the 3g version), not able to send messages from imessage. Also if I send an imessage from my iphone to my ipad (can only use the icloud id for it) it goes to the emails not the imessage. How do I set this up properly?
