    Thank you so much for your response.  I do know that my grandson who is 10 has downloaded a game and songs from itunes so his email address should allow me to send a text to him. When I try to send a text using his email address to his ipod touch, my send button is greyed out.  Again thank you for trying to help me. It is greatly appreciated.

    How do you send messages to your other contacts? Like, I can only text one person, who has a cell phone, but everyone else apparently isn't registered with imessage (so it says). How do I text people that have cell phones? For that matter, why does only that recipient work when I text them on their cell phone, but no one elses'?

    Hi read all your suggestions your great!

    Anyway I want ask if it possible to change the email address from my iPad? Because once I receive iMessage thru my iPhone I can also receive thru my iPad.

    Thanks

    Having similar issues getting my Son's iMessaging to work on his Ipod touch. We have 3 devices in our household - my 3GS, wife's 4G and his iPod touch. We are trying to send messages between my wife's phone and my son's iPod. I have upgraded my wife's operating system to iOS5 and my son's was already loaded with the latest version. I've gone into the message menu on both devices to activate iMessage. However; when my son try's to message his mom - the message - "...is not registered with iMessage"

     

    what do I need to do?

    You can only use emails under ONE apple ID.  If it says the email is already in use, this is because it is verified under a previous apple ID.  You need to go to "Manage my Apple ID", sign in with this old Apple ID, and remove the "additional email address" from that Apple ID before you can add it to the newer one.

     

    If you are unable to send iMessages to email addresses that you know are verified, the person on the other end might simply have to go into their own settings and turn iMessage on... this might be why some 5.0 OS iMessage email addresses will show up red instead of the beautiful blue we hope for.

     

    Good luck!

    I feel like a noob asking this, but you can only text Apple devices using iMessage right? And if so, then downloading that SMS Rage Fac App would seem obsolete and slightly futile DX

    Right. You can simply add either their e-mail addresses or phone numbers and you can instantly send texts.
