    So im going to get my first iPad and next week, and im thinking about setting up my iMessage account on it. Me and my dad shares accounts, but I disabled iMessage on his iPad. But what will happen when i activate iMessage on the iPad? i assume the messages will no longer be sent from my phone number (as my phonebook contacts know me by), but rather by my email. How will i get my friend email so that i can message them from my iPad? Plz explain! Will all iMsgs sync between my iPhone and iPad?
