iPhone texting help!?

so i just got an iphone and im a little confused about texting.

i was told that "imessage" or "messages" is the texting thing for an iPhone, but i read on the settings that it only allows you to text ipads, iphones, and ipods, so i cant text my friends who have actual cellphones other than iPhones. how do i text them? and is imessage what im supposed to be using for texting on an iPhone or is there something im missing..?

    imessage only work on apple devices...if you send a text to someone with out an iphone it will be send as a regular text message...if it is being sent as a imessage to ppl without an iphone,just tap the message and it will be sent as a text.

    You can still text other people!

    iMessage is just messaging to iphones, ipads, and ipod touches. So it gives you the ability to text ipods and ipads.
