On my iPad I can only send iMessages but not all my friends have an I pad or iPhone how can I send other messages too

You will need to download a texting App from the App Store. I have seen Text + recommended on the forum.

  • I found an ipad in the middle of the road but I cannot activate my own Apple ID, how can I make it my on?

    I tried to contact the owner but I have not heard back for over a week. I want to activate this Ipad with my own Apple ID. Help!

    Think about it.
    If you lost yours in the middle of the road what would you want to happen? For the finder to try and make it their own or for them to try to get it back to you?
    THe activation lock cannot be broken so the device is as good as dead to you. You'll never be able to make it your own.

  • Why can't i send text messages to those who don't have apple products?

    I am unable to send text messages to those who don't have apple products.  Can someone help with how to do this?  I know imessages don't work to them, but I should still be able to text them.  Help?

    Hi there!
    If you want to send text messages on your iPad, you may be talking about the recent Continuity Feature. To do this you will also need an iPhone connected to the same wi-fi network.
    On your iPhone:
    Go to Settings
    Then to Messages
    Then 'Text Message Forwarding'
    Turn on the device you want to send a text message, in your case your iPad.
    Your phone should ask a code that it sent to your iPad. In the box type in the code that shows up on your iPad and press Allow.
    You should be good to go.

    There is a huge difference between sending email and sending messages.
    Yes, I believe you when you say you can only send messages to other Apple products.  The iPad is not a telephone, and therefore, it cannot text message.  It can only iMessage, which means it can send and receive messages to/from other Apple products if they are on WiFi or an iMessage capable cellular network.
    Email, however, is a whole different category.  I don't really think you can only exchange email with other Apple products only.  Make sure you have correctly identified the symptoms.

  • I want to change my iCloud account. Buying iPad we gave a virtual (forwarding) email addr. We need to change to a real address. But when we try to change the iCloud account, we can only change the password. Note: we don't have Mac, only iPad and Windows.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Firstly, you need to change your details with Apple,  Start here, change your country if necessary and go to manage your account.
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your iOS device, you need to delete the account from your iOS device first, then add it back using your updated details. (Settings > iCloud, scroll down and hit "Delete Account")
    Providing you are simply updating your existing details and not changing to another account, when you delete your account, all the data that is synced with iCloud will also be deleted from the device (but not from iCloud), but will be synced back to your device when you login again.
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your computer, you need to sign out of the account from your computer first, then sign back in using your updated details. (System Preferences > iCloud, click the sign out button)
    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iTunes account on your iOS device, you need to sign out from your iOS device first, then sign back in using your updated details. (Settings > iTunes & App store, scroll down and tap your ID)
    If you are using iMessages or FaceTime, you will also need to log out and into your ID there too.

  • On imac 10.6.8 using current version of Aperture.  How can I access the Aperture Library  on my external hard drive that I use with time machine for backup?  I can only access the application but not the library..

    On imac 10.6.8 using current version of Aperture.  How can I access the Aperture Library  on my external hard drive that I use with time machine for backup?  I can only access the application but not the library..

    Go into Time Machine (the program not the bundle on the extrnal disk) and using Time Machine's browser go to the Folder where the library lives. You could look in the library bundle in Time Machine but that won't really tell you much,
    If you want to make sure it truely has backed up your library you will need to restore it and open the restored library with Aperture.
    If all this still has you confused you need to read up on Time Machine in order to get a feel for how it works, for what it is doing and for how to restore files from it.

  • I had 21 songs i my album and after syncronising i only had 15 songs left! All of them from Itunes! How can i get them back without paying for them again???

    Hello!!!

    Hello!!!
    This realy works??

    Where is the backup of the media and other important files from the computer?  Ultimately, it is the users responsibility to ensure that backups exists. Waiting until there is a problem to decide to do a backup is not smart.  Would you wait until a fire started in your home to call the insurance company and inquire about homeowners/renters insurance????
    In the event that no backup exists (stop being lazy.... keep backups of YOUR data and other important files):
    If you are in the US and running iTunes 10.3 or later, it is possible to redownload music via iCloud from purchased history.
    If you are not in the US or for some reason cannot run iTunes 10.3 or later, contact iTunes customer support and ask very nicely for the opportunity to redownload the content.  They are not required to provide this opportunity.
    It is also possible to transfer content from an iDevice that was purchased via iTunes.  On the new computer, sign into the iTunes account, authorize the computer, connect the device then select File > Transfer Purchases.
    The simplest method of all is to transfer or copy the media (and other important files) from the old computer or the backup of the old computer.  Typing "move itunes library" into the search bar here or into google will reveal step by step instructions on how to do this.

    I am doing a photo book but can only place picture from the last 12 months or last import. How can I access other pictures? Any advice?

    You access them in the event they are in or under Photos or from an album if they are in an album - simply drag them to the book project in the source pane on the left

    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    If that doesn't help, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings

    If you no longer have, or access to, the computer(s) you want to deauthorise,
    Log in to iTunes,  go to "view your account info" on the itunes store,  deauthorise all five, (Please Note: this can only be done Once every 12 months)  and then re-authorize your current Computer(s) one at a time.

    How can i format Iphone 4.But i didnt want deleted pictures,programs,musics.How can i do that?

    Restoring to factory setting will certainly erase the pics.
    Why don't you import the pics to your computer as you should be doing anyway?

  • I previously owned an iPad. I want to restore my iBook collection from my iPad to my Macbook. I can only see my collections but not the books. How can I restore it from my iPad backup?

    I prevsiouly owned an Ipad. Before selling it, I backup it on my Macbook. When the new Mavericks has been released, i upgraded my Mac. Now that I have iBooks on my Mac, I want to restore my iBook collection from my previous Ipad to my Mac. On my Mac, I can only see the iBooks collection of my previous iPad but not the books that I have purchased. I probably had more than a hundred books on my collection (in epub and pdf formats). I have already tried transferring purchases in iTunes and adding to my Library but to no avail.
    Can anyone give me a solution to this.

    Restore as a NEW device to test. If this solves it, that means there is some corruption in your backup file, or maybe it's one of your apps causing the trouble. If the problem is still there, you should take it to the Genius Bar at an Apple Store for evaluation.
