I don't know if it's this thread or another iMessage thread but I was having problems sending messages to my friend who is in my own damned plan yesterday and today. At first I thought I was confusing the server or something by having both my phone number and my Apple ID on my phone so I unlinked my ID from iMessage and messages were going fine.
At first I thought it was my reception but regular SMS goes through just fine. iMessages from my wi-fi only iPad 2 go through just fine and incredibly fast so it can't be my internet connection. Not sure what the issue is! I really don't want it to be a hardware issue. I'm not in the mood to visit an Apple Store or a Sprint store.
I like the unlimited character usage and watching messages blaze on my iPad is great, but this is frankly getting annoying.

Just trying to get my head round this so bear with me. When I iMessage my wife from mi iPad I'd only does it using her @me address and not her telephone number..she gets the message on helipad and phone. My daughter only has a phone but I have to connect through her mobile number from my iPad as her @me address won't connect. Why would that be? Suppose it does not really matter as the message is sent but I'm just interested.

It has yet to work with my iPhone 4 (Verizon).
It did work with my iPod and iPad 2, i turned off from my iPod and now i just don't receive them.
Also, anything i send does not get received. Frustrating as this was one of the things i was really looking forward to as i do not have a message plan.

iMessage Deleting Question
Has anyone been able to get there iMessage to delete across multiple devices? I have everything set up with the correct caller id settings as I receive messages across multiple devices, but when I delete it only deletes on the native device (running on iPhone4s and iPad2). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since most of the people that I know have an iPhone running iOs 5, I am really liking iMessage. I don't have a texting plan, so this feature really cuts back on the pay per text charges for me.

I hope people understand that iMessage is not designed to be a copy of BBM, for example. iMessage sits in the 'Messages' app for a reason, they are both divisions of the same thing. iMessages are essentially text messages but you can also send them to iPods/iPads etc. because of the Apple ID system.
If people want things like statuses and display pictures they should get Whatsapp or something similar because I doubt Apple will be adding this feature to iMessage any time soon, as that is not what the app is designed to do.
