    I have been told that I can text via imessage and wifi as long as the other end has imessge and wifi also. Is this correct??
    If so how does a recipient send a New message to me when I have no mobile number?
    I guess I'm asking what do 2 parties use for a contact address.??

    Thanks

    Use your email address, rather than a phone number. Go to Settings -> Messages > sent and received > check email address.
