    Work or school server? Maybe it's a firewall or other kind of network traffic issue? Talk to your LAN or Data Admin,or IT person they should be able to help you troubleshoot it. If it's an office they might not allow IMing within the network, but externally the firewall just sees packets of data not IM traffic so it lets the IMs out so that is why you can IM external people. USUALLY it works the other way around, but it can work this way too, for example, my office does not allow internal IM traffic either.


    EDIT: I'm an IT person so that is why I know a little bit about this.

    The iPad can only send messages to people on iOS. If they are using anything else it won't work. Obviously the iPhone does not have that limitation which is why it works fine. I believe iOS8 is going to change that and will allow iPad's to message any device, not just other iOS devices.

    I'm pretty sure an iPhone 3 doesn't support iOS 5 and therefore doesn't have iMessage leaving only sms. And an iPad can't send SMS.

    Yeah that's what I figured. But considering how apple is I would not have been surprised if the iPhone 3 supported iOS 5.

    I'm sorry you confused me when you said server. I think you meant to say provider, or carrier, such a Verizion or AT&T. A server is a larger computer that controls the internet or network for a school or office (or home).
