Same Apple ID on both devices - but if I initiate the imessage from my iPhone, it's not showing up on my iPod Touch.

Can you tell me if this is a glitch or is this how it is supposed to work?

Have you set it up with the phone number? My mac 10.8.2, my ipad2 6.0.1, my iPod touch 4th gen 6.0.1 and my iPhone 4s 6.0.1 all stay in sync. – rclyde Dec 21 '12 at 2:39
Maybe it's because I deleted the imessage before my ipod was able to get connected to wifi / internet? I'm not sure...but just the response from the other person is coming up on one and not the other – Michael Dec 24 '12 at 16:06
