    Try signing out of iMessages on both the iPhone and iPad, waiting a while, then signing back in. Make sure you are using the same Apple ID/iCloud ID. This will force the iMessage server to reset the addresses associated with your service. If you have any other iOS or OS X devices, you should do the same with them; provided you want them all to use the same iMessage service.

    Hold in mind that iMessage is not SMS. The iPhone will also use SMS if you have a plan and it's enabled. SMS messages sent to and from the iPhone will never appear on the iPad.
