Sign out of messages on ipad, reboot ipad by pressing and holding both the home and power buttons at the same time until the apple logo appears on the screen, then let go.
Go to appleid.apple.com on iphone, manage account, verfiy phone number is same
Now go back and sign into messages on ipad, using same apple id you just verified on iphone

iMessage will not accept my mobile number so cannot get SMS on ipad
Even if you get iMessage set up properly using Grumpy Gator's instructions, you still will not get SMSs on your iPad, only iMessages (from other iPad, iPhones, iPod Touchs or Mac computers). If you need to get regular SMS, you'll need an app from the App Store such as TextFree.

It looks like after fixing their security issue with Apple ID's, it no longer works at all for some accounts. This prevents iMessage and Facetime from linking to a phone number. What happened to Apple? I used to be fine paying a premium price for a premium product, but now, everytime they fix or upgrade something, it's done in a Microsoft kind of way. They're very close to losing another long time customer.
