Do you have a smart phone, such as an iPhone, that you can use to send a text message? The iMessage function is only between Apple products.

Imessage falls back to SMS when it tries to send messages to non apple devices. That's because iMessage is an iOS only feature. Since your ipad doesn't have a phone number, it won't send it out to a non iOS device.
You would have to download a third party app that allows you to send text messages over data (I do believe some messangers let you do that as well as skype?)

Well that is bad. I tried to turn iMessage off. When do that it prompts me to set it up. I want to text message everyone not just Apple users.
