Why wont imessage on ipod touch send messages to my iphone contacts?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I have bought my daughter an ipod touch - she wants to use the imessage function to send messages to me on my iphone. The ipod touch lets her type the message but whenever she tries to send it it comes up with a red exclamation mark and says message sending failed. On other occasions it removes her contact list, or the send button wont press. So far she has not managed to send one message.
Any ideas what we are doing wrong?

Are both you only using the same Apple ID email address (and likely your phone number) in Settings>Messages>Send and Receive?
Can she Message other iOS users?
