I have an original iPad 2 running the most current iOS update. I would prefer to send text via my iPad instead of my iPhone. (larger keyboard and text). However after I type out my text and press the send button it won't go thru. I mean the text button doesn't even offer me the opportunity to send it. I know that I have used this before and it has worked, its just been awhile. Any ideas on a fix for this? Thanks in advance.

Are you trying to send a text message or an iMessage? If the former, are you using Yosemite and iOS 8 and have the text forwarding feature enabled on your iPhone (Settings - Messages - Text Message Forwarding)?

I followed your instructions, but then asks for a code from my iPad to enter. Nothing has popped up.
