Hi browneyes92676,

Thank you for contributing to the Apple Support Communities.

I see you're wondering about using iMessage and Family Sharing. These are two different Apple services that aren't necessarily dependent on each other.

For information on setting up or troubleshooting iMessage on your iPad:

Use Messages on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

If you can't send or receive messages on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support


If you set up Family Sharing, here are the features that are enabled:

Set up Family Sharing - Apple Support

Start sharing

After your family members join, the features of Family Sharing are set up on everyone’s devices. Here's what you can do:

If you don't want to share the family photo album, calendar, or reminders, you can unsubscribe from them directly on your device, or on iCloud.com.


Sincerely.
