iMessage on iPad 2 question
Anyway to change my iMessage name on my iPad? Right now, when I iMessage someone from my iPad, it appears in their messages as the email I have tied to my itunes account. Anyway to change that so those receiving my iMessages see my name or phone number rather than my email?

Go to Settings-Messages and then scroll down to 'Receive At' and then change the selection from your Apple ID to your phone number. By doing so, your name will appear on the recipient's device as he or she has it listes in their contact list.

Not unless u have a 3G iPad that has a number then it would show that number but there is no way to show your iPhones number

Re: iMessage on iPad 2 question
I'm assuming you have to have that service activated? The one I was given is enabled VZW is gouging me enough! I don't see anything but email.
I could be comparing apples to oranges and iOS is sooooo much better but I could have my name and pic with BBM. #itsthelittlethings
