Hi Edee and welcome to the Forum!

For iMessage to work the people you contact must also have an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch which is on IOS5 and activated for iMessage to work, maybe some of your contacts do not meet these requirements.

Hello Leelai:
Thank you for your response.
The contacts I am not able to text from my iPad can be sent texts from my iPhone. So, if that is not the issue, what other fix is there?

Are the texts that you are sending from your iPhone in blue which signifies iMessage or green which is normal text?
