    In Messages on the iPad you need to be using an Apple ID (which you probably are)


    You can then iMessage (the form of Apple Chat Messaging that is used) to other Apple IDs or iPhone numbers.


    They have to be using iOS 5.5 or higher or OS X 10.8 on a Mac.  ( A Mac could be up to OS X 10.8.2 if updated iOS devices could be up to iOS 6.0.1)


    You then needs either WiFi access or a Data contract and an iPad that can do at least 3G (some have SIM cards)
