  my texts and iMessages not going to my iPhone nor my iPad with the exception of my husband's messages and an emergency weather text from our local TV station. Everything else is going to my old iPad. This all changed about the end of April. Anybody know what's going on?

    If the messages are going to your iPad, they can only be iMessage, not SMS texts (which can only go to a cell phone).


    Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > You can be reached by iMessage at > make sure the address used to send to you is active on your phone.
