    When I get an iMessage , I want to get the notification in both iPad & iPhone but that's not happening

    iPhone is in firmware 5.0.1
    iPad is in 5.1

    When somebody iMessages me on my cell number isn't the iPad suppose to get that message too ?

    Or is it only emails iMessages the iPad gets

    Both iPad & iPhone are in the same iCloud/apple ID ACCOUNT

    If I send an iMessage with my iPad , I want both iPad & iPhone to get the reply & vice versa

    You will only get the message in both places if you have your AppleID setup in Settings>Messages>Receive At on the iPhone. Otherwise, the iPhone is only acting as iMessage using your cell number and not associated with the AppleID that your iPad is using.

    On my iPhone I have received at phone number & email

    On the iPad I have received at email only, I don't see an option for phone numbers

    Both use the same email
