    Settings > Message > iMessage and make sure that is on

    Also check

    Settings > Message > iMessage > Send and Receive and make sure that your mobile number, iCloud email address and email address are there


    If after doing all this, it still does not work, try a reset,


    Reset your iPad by pressing the 'Sleep' and 'Home' button at the same time for about 15 seconds or so. Your iPad  will then go through a reset / reboot procedure and will be ready for use within about a minute.

    Don't worry about doing this as you will not lose data or settings.

    Good luck and do report back.
