How to text on an iPod Touch using iMessage


Do you want free, easy and unlimited texting? You may not have a phone, but if you have an iPod Touch, you’re in luck! iMessage has been introduced with the iOS 5 update. With iMessage, you can send text and multimedia messages to other Apple iOS devices and they can text you back, even without a cell phone plan! It’s simple, unlimited and absolutely free.

Step One

Make sure your iPod has been updated to iOS 5. Connect to iTunes and install the update. Once you've done that, you will automatically get the iMessage app.

Step Two

Connect to the internet wirelessly.

Step Three

Set up iMessage with your existing Apple ID. This will enable others to use your email address to message you.

Step Four

Go to Contacts (located at the bottom of the screen) and add your friend's number or email address. You can add their name, the company they work for, their email address and a lot more.

Step Five

Tap the "Messages" app at the bottom of your iPod to open it.

Step Six

Type in somebody's name (or number) and tap the number/email address you want to message.

Step Seven

Tap the text field and start typing your message. It can be as long as you like. After you're done typing, hit send. To send a picture or video, tap on the Camera icon on the left of the text field. You can choose to take a picture with the camera or pick one from your photo album. Sending multimedia generally take longer to send than text messages. Your message will be in a blue speech balloon on the right side of the screen, while the recipient's message will be in a grey balloon on the left side of the screen.
