How to Use iMessage

One of the mainstay features of IOS 5 is iMessage, do you know how to use iMessage? Before we discuss about how to use iMessage it helps us to know some important things pertaining to him. First, iMessage feature can only be found on the gadgets that have used the IOS 5. IOS 5 is available for the iPhone from the iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. To iPad can be installed there and IPAD IPAD 2. While the iPod is available for the iPod generation 3 and 4. So for those of you who have one of these gadgets can instantly upgrade your IOS to version 5. Second, features iMessage very closely with your Apple ID. When you first upgrade the IOS 5 then you will be prompted to enter the Apple ID to set up iCloud, iTunes Store, App Store and other features including iMessage

One thing I can conclude, after performing several experiments, is iMessage using the Apple ID as your identity. If you log into iTunes store on your iPhone using another email address then it will appear iMessage features directly. Third, contact the iMessage depends on the contact that you store on your iCloud account. When you upgrade to IOS 5 and you choose to activate the feature iCloud then you are asked if you want to merge your contacts on your iPhone with the contacts on iCloud. If you answered yes then all the contacts on the iPhone will be copied to a contact in iCloud. If not then you have to enter your own contacts in iCloud. Whichever way you choose iMessage will find a list of emails to a contact in iCloud and checks if the email is also registered as a user iCloud. You can only send iMessage to your friend's email address listed on iCloud. Well it was too lengthy introduction, let's continue to discuss how to use iMessage.
