    I'm trying to set up my iPhone so it will allow me to send / read txt messages on my iPad
    But when I try and activate it from settings on my phone, it generates a message

    "txt message forwarding: enter the code shown on your iPad to allow iPhone txt messages to also be sent and received on your iPad"

    It then has a box to type in the 'code'

    What code are they talking about? And where on the iPad do I find it?!
    Thanks!
    Lorelei

    Make sure your telephone number is checkmarked on your iPad in Settings - Messages - Send & Receive.

    If it is, go to Messages on your iPhone, and turn off iMessages, then turn it on again. Do the same on your iPad.
    Then the code should appear. If memory serves right, it's a popup (or a text message).
