I recently bought an iphone 5 and have it set up for imessage. I then went to my ipad 2 and wanted to be able to send and recieve messages there as well.

It only gives me the option of having people contact me through email, if they know my email.

Is there an option or way of getting and sending imessages through my ipad as well/


Like I said, it doesnt give me the option to add a phone number?

I am doing something wrong, or is this the way ipad 2 works in regards to imessages?


Thanks in advance!

iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iOS 5.0.1
