How to Setup iMessage on your iPad

iMessage activate switch

iMessage is a great way to send free text messages on your iPad.
One of the great features of living within the Apple ecosystem is how the devices work so well together. This symbiotic relationship between products extends to text messaging, with iMessage allowing you to send a free text message to anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

To get iMessage working, you'll need to set it up on your iPad first, but luckily this is just a matter of going into the settings and signing in with your Apple ID.

First, go to the iPad Settings by tapping the icon that looks like gears turning.
Scroll down the left-side menu until you locate Messages. Tapping this menu item will bring up the iMessage settings.

Flip the switch for iMessage to the On setting. This will prompt you to login with you Apple ID.

Once logged in, you should see your the email address you use with your Apple ID in the "Receive At" section of the settings. If you'd like to receive text messages at a different email address, touch the "Receive At" setting and then touch "Add Another Email..." to add the new email address. You will be sent a verification email, and after verifying, you will be able to receive text messages at that address as well as your main address.

KoenBeste trapple, Heb sinds kort een one plus 3t met android versie 7. Als ik in de standby app een datum wil selecteren dan sluit de app zich. Daarna moet je alles weer invoeren oftewel de app is niet te gebruiken. Groetjes, Koen Schimmel11 Feb 2017 - 11:17
