iMessage on my ipad2 dun seem to work well...

Dear all,

I wonder if anyone of you have the same problem that I've been facing:

I tried to do iMessage with people I know who has upgraded to ios 5 on all their iDevices, but to no avail.

When I add from my contacts, no matter their email address or phone, the exclamation marks will alert to me that they are not registered users of the iMessage service, and therefore I can't send any message to them.

However, the same people can send iMessages to me on my iPad and I'm able to receive them. Thereafter, if I keep their message thread, ill be able to message them from this thread, but am unable to to start a fresh thread.

Any one solved this mystery?

Give it time, sometimes it takes a little while for your contact to be seen as having imessage. At least thats what happened with me. Tried it a day or 2 later and everything was fine

P.S force close your messages app before you try again
