When you say "turn on iMessage", do you literally mean going into the settings and flicking iMessage from Off to On?

If you do, then I think it's normal (or at least not abnormal) for your iPhone to then request your password.

Other than having iMessage enabled in settings with your phone number (on the iPhone) and an email address (iPhone and iPad) ... there's not a way to "turn on" iMessage. It's automatic in the messaging app.

The app automatically will send a text message as an iMessage to an enabled iDevice ... or as a regular SMS to a non-iPhone. iMessage can go to a iPhone via phone number or email address. It's email-address-only connection for the iPad.
