    Both devices need to be on iOS 8, both devices need to be signed in on the same iCloud account, both devices need to be on the same wifi network and both devices need to have bluetooth on.

    "For years, iMessage has allowed users to see messages from other iOS or Mac users on all their devices. The people not using Apple devices those green-bubble peeps were left out. This was annoying if you wanted to send a message to someone on your iPad, but they weren't on iOS.

    But next month, you'll be able to send and receive SMS and MMS messages from an iPad or Mac, thanks to iOS 8's SMS relay support. Now when the green people text you, you don't have to ask to switch apps so you can go to another room with your iPad."

    Tanq so much, so now should I connect to another iPhone?
    I don't think so, because i have iPad 4g+cellular, and i have sim card.
    Is that true?
    Sorry for any inconvenience

    If they are using the same iTunes account on all devices, iMessages will be in sync on all.

    As the article says, sms will be next month.

    You should update to 8.1. It cleans up a lot of issues created with 8.0.
    I just updated mine and it is working well.
    Good Luck

    I don't know anything about iPods.
    Unless you have a real old version iPhone, updating your iPhone will be fine.
    Good Luck

    I'm going to give you a tip - go to Google and type in the topic you're searching for.

    Sorry but there's a difference between using these forums to share & elaborate on Apple technology and someone being completely helpless and not doing an ounce of research on their own. This will be my last response on this topic to you.

    How far can my iPad and my iPhone be apart? Does it only work on Wi-Fi? Or can I leave my iPhone in my car and take my iPad Air at&t with me and send sms?
