    hey guys

    I eventually got iMessage to work on both devices and big devices show messages however only my iPhone shows the name. Is there a way for the iPad to also show the name rather than the number?

    Are you logged into the same iCloud account (and have contacts enabled) on both devices?

    Thanks

    Ok so what I did was turn both the contacts on/off again in the iCloud settings. A pop up then popped up and said merge contacts to which I agreed and it seems to have worked now

    Thanks for your help and reply
