I have a small problem with mine and it's that when someone iMessages me it splits it's into a different chat and not the one with all my messages in, this has happened with the last two people that have sent me an iMessage but the one before that stayed with the contact and had the normal SMS's and imessenges together, so I then have to save the email address that sent the iMessage as a separate contact, can anybody help me with this. Cheers

It really bugs me that iMessage only works with Apple ID's. So why in the messages settings> receive at shows my number and I can add additional addresses? I just don't get it.. because I was expecting it to "just work." Weak
Edit: I just saw the photo showing the phone number searching for iMessage capability. when I enter my friends number it doesn't work, but if I enter his email it works. WTH?

As of right now, I'd say BBM is less of a hassle to get working than iMessage. It's easy! You just exchange unique PIN's. iMessage is suppose to work without having to figure out pins, emails, yada yada. Instead I'm trying to figure out how to send an iMessage to other iPhone users via email addresses or phone numbers but it's hit or miss. I though "it just works." I'm frustrated!

Wow - it's amazing how confused people are
- just text people at their phone number like you always do. If they have ios5 AND have iMessage turned on, it will Automatically send as an iMessage. You don't have to do anything.
- if the person has an iPad/iPod just send it to their email address (which they have to have told iMessage to use). Then they will get it in all of their iOS devices and can reply from any of them (including their iPhone)
- IMessage uses your data plan or wifi. It does not use your text message plan
- if you send someone an iMessage and it can't be delivered with some amount of time (5 min I think) it will send as an SMS
