iMessage won't work?

So I've been enjoying the awesome iMessage on my iPhone with minimal fuss, it just works. I've got that setup to my hellerphant@me.com account and it works fine.

My iPad however will sit there not sending the message until eventually I get a "Not Delivered" error. At first i thought it was because both of my devices are using the same account, so I changed my iPad to use the same account as my iTunes ID.

Still no dice.

Any thoughts?
Both have it activated in the settings?

Both are accessing wi-fi?

Yes sir, both are activated and on the same wi-fi and both are using different accounts now.
No idea then. Apple stuff just usually works! [Rage]
i havent even found anyone i can imessage yet :@

seems to be alot of bugs with all these updates recently... its never been this bad before with apple but its excusable seeing as the have a new phone, new iOS, new mac firmware and new itunes all at the same time. not to mention they would be somewhat distracted by the passing of steve jobs.

Not sure. Both(iPad and iPhone) of mine had iMessages already activated for some reason and both have my Apple ID signed into them for iCloud. I can send messages from one device to other and vice versa, so I can confirm it isn't an accounts thing.

It's strange that yours isn't working.
That is odd for sure, my phone and iPad work fine :S
People, feel free to iMessage me. [MOG]

..if you know my deets that is. (evil)
Alas I do not know your details, so no birthday messages from me @Matteh

Oh @M@ndyz [Facepalm]

if its an ipad or ipod then its easy to do imessage.

for iphone its built into the sms app and its more complicated to work out if its an imessage or an sms
yep ipad i don't have an iPhone :)
Sent an iMessage to Matteh and Shaunee to see if it works (evil)
iMessage is great. It's blue if it's an iMessage and green if it's an sms. Plus it says iMessage before you start typing and it somehow know if the person you are sending it to has iMessage set up or have an apple product. Mines working on both iPad and iPhone
My iPod has been doing this every second day for a week now, has anyone found a solution?
Every second day? It should be working every day as long as you have it activated in the Messages settings and the recipient is an iOS 5 user.
Just tried deactivating and reactivating, as well as the "8.8.8.8" DNS trick. Neither of these have worked. The bar gets about a third of the way and then says "not delivered" every time I try to send an iMessage today. was working fine yesterday.
That's so weird. Have you tried rebooting your iPhone? It should be working every day. :S
Yeah i have done that too. Odd, i sent a few imessages just fine this morning but now its not working.
Is there anyone to choose to send/receive as a text? I'd prefer to text when not on wi-fi or in 3G zone.

Have you googled to see if others have the same problem? That's so weird.

Other than actually turning imessaging off, I don't think so.
Yea I have the same Problem, I'll send a few messages straight up fine full bars/close vacinity range to wi fi and then all of a sudden BAM 'not delivered' sometimes I don't even need to send as iMessage cause it automatically goes to text when I know 100% the person I text has iMessage
