Why won't my iPad let me text certain people?
Are you talking about iMessages ? If so you can only message other devices that have been updated to IOS 5. Hope that helps.
Recipients must be using an iOS device running iOS 5 and you have to have their email address. You can't just text regular cellphone numbers to any device other than an iPhone.
The people you are texting on iMessage have to have an iMessage account to text them.
Why can I text to the same person using my iPhone but not my iPad and both of my devices have iMessage ios5
Settings > Messages > Send as SMS > ON.
@tonefox iPad does not have the "Send as SMS" option.
By Jove, you're right. Sorry.
I assume the poster hasn't checked out the alternatives here.
