Thank you for letting us know.
If you have a problem you actually want help with, you're going to need to give some details.

Its pretty basic I can only text to other AT&T users with iphones and ipads, however if you dont have an iphone and are on another network everything works fine. My wifes ipad is still running 6.0 and works fine, clearly somebody at Apple forgot something when they released the 6.1 update.

Or, your account is not properly provisioned for SMS texts. Contact your carrier and find out. Texting works just fine for the vast majority of people using 6.1.

text go through apple and not the local carrier on aplle products, The local carrier have no bearing on the updated and the issues they present, it not the carrier. As I mentioned it only affected the phones and ipads that were updated to 6.1. Do you wor for Apple?

That is incorrect. Only iMessages go through Apple. Messages to any non-Apple device are handled by your carrier.

what is exactly what I said, there is only issues with the Apple products that were updated to 6.1 my other Apple devices that are still at 6.0 work fine

My wife and I are on different networks ie GCI vs AT&T after we both updated our iphones to 6.1 we no longer can receive texts messaging even though both are phones say the message was delivered. we can however text with other iphone users as long they are withing the same carrier and with everyone as long as they are not other iphones regardless of the carrier as well as with other iphon users that are still using 6.0. My wife and I also have ipads with wifi only and the one we updated to 6.1 is having the same issue while the one that is still 6.0 has no issue and will send and receive messages with out issue even to and from the 6.1 devives that are having issues. I have contacted both service providers and was told it is a Apple messaging issue. At this point I just would like to find and reinstal the 6.

I'm still a little confused, but let's start out by saying you cannot go back to 6.0. It's not possible.
What I think you need to do on ALL of the iphones/ipad's that are having the problem, is to disable iMessage then re-enable it.
Try that first, then let us know what is still not working.
