What is iMessage?
iMessage is the built in texting service that Apple provides on all of its iPhone and iPad devices. This means as long as a data connection is available you can send a text from one Apple device to another, no talk / text plan required.
Please note, iMessage is not available on Android devices.
This is helpful because if you run out of texts messages in your FreedomPop plan or simply want to preserve your text messages, you will be able to send an iMessage to another iPhone or iPad owner. To see how iMessages work, click here.
