In our iOS devices, my family all use my husband's Apple ID for the Settings -> Store, so that we may buy apps once and have them on all our devices (daughter's iPod, etc.)


We have all set our devices up with our own Settings -> iCloud ID. I read in another discussion that this would allow us to iMessage between each other.


It's not really working. I sat down with my husband's iPhone, my iPhone, and my daughter's iPod Touch last night. I'd try to send a message from my daughter's touch to my phone number; and I would get it, and my husband would get it too. There's some wonky stuff going on here.


Unless someone has some kind of magic sauce to suddenly make iMessage work BETWEEN our family's devices...?  Bueller...?


Thanks in advance


iPhone 4, iOS 5, Also using latest gen iPod Touch.
