Wondering how to setup iOS 5's new iMessage service on your iPhone or iPod touch? Using iMessage you can send text messages, photos, video and much more to other iMessage users around the world, all over your existing data connection. That's right, no texting plans or charges needed! Here's how to get started.
That is all you need, you now have iMessage set up on your iPhone!
Setting up iMessage on the iPod touch is slightly difefrent as these devices do not have any telephone number associated with them.
Ok now we have iMessage set up there are a few things to consider. If you only have one device then you are fine. If you have multiple iOS 5 devices then you will need to think about how you want them to work. Do you want separate iMessage accounts for each device? More than likely, you would want one account that stays in sync across all of your devices.
If you want separate iMessage accounts for each device, you will need to create separate Apple ID's for each device, these can be created for free in the iMessage original set up screen. Just select Create New Account.
If you want to have all devices use one iMessage account then you need to input the same Apple ID details into each device iMessage setup page.
That should be all you need to get started with iMessage!
