    For some reason I can't iMessage from my iPad. I can receive messages, but when I type to reply, the send button stays faded (not lit up/I can't press it). That problem happens both on 3G and with wifi.

    Also, my iPod touch is hit or miss with iMessage when on wifi.

    I'm wondering, does the recipient need to be on wifi for me to send them a message? Can I not iMessage people when I'm only on 3G on the iPad? And can I not iMessage iPhones or iPads unless they are on wifi and not only on 3G?

    Thanks.

    Try turning off iMessage, restart your iPad, turn iMessage on and see what happens.

    Make sure you're not typing it all in the subject line, it's on by default on the iPad.

    I am not typing in subject. Thanks for the tip tho.

    And Im going to try turning iMessage off and rebooting and see what happens.

    EDIT: works perfectly after turning imessage off rebooting the ipad and then turning imessage back on.
