    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    The "Messages" app that came with your iPad can only be used between Apple devices. You can't send messages to or receive messages from other devices with it.

    On your iPad, you usually set it up with your email address. If the persons you want to send messages to also owns an Apple device, they should be able to contact you by writing your email address in "To:" You can send messages yourself. Open the app, tap 1, then write an email address (2) and a subject (3), then your message (4).

    Hi ajmariani, and welcome to the forum. Here is a thread on a discussion on multi-messaging off the iPad that may be of assistance to you. At least to indicate the minimum possibilities.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Is it the Messages app on the iPad which you are speaking about? If it is then follow what JA has posted.
    There is another new app called MessageMe which works for apple devices and android. When you set it up it has a step where you can send messages to all your friends also to get this app. Hope this helps.
