Icloud text question

If I have my iPad and my iPhone synced through iCloud, and I can see that my text messages are being received/sent on both, if I send an iMessage on my iPad and immediately delete the entire text thread on my iPad, does it in turn delete the text threat off of my iPhone? If not, does it show the iMessage I sent from my iPad?

Pretty much what happened was I was over my buddy's house and his iphone and ipad are synced to icloud. I am assuming this because he had been text messaging me all day and all of the most current text messages were showing on his ipad. I used his ipad to send a text message to my wife with some of our bank account information she needed. I immediately deleted the text thread from the ipad (My wife also has an iphone so I am assuming it was an imessage). My question is does this imessage go to his phone still if I deleted it? Or does it delete from his phone because I deleted it from his ipad?

So far all of the iMessage stuff seems to work the same on iOS 7.

The account name is usually their email address

We have 2 iPod touches, an iPad and an iPhone 4s. Will text messages from the phone show up on the other devices? They are all synced to the same computer.

iMessages will only show on all of the devices if they are all configured with the same iCloud account.

Re: Icloud text question
Can I change the iCloud account of one of the iPods and still sync it on the same computer? I don't want my child getting my text messages for work.

Re: Icloud text question

Icloud accounts and syncing on the computers aren't related.. the only relation might be that if you are buying apps via one iCloud account, you might want to keep that for purchases and use another account for email, iMessages, and other iCloud services, which can can easily do.. Just look on your iPods in Settings under each section and put in whatever account you want to use for whichever service.

Re: Icloud text question

Based on my recent testing, deleting an iMessage or entire iMessage thread on one device does not in turn delete it on the other device. I would swear it was different (it DID delete on all devices) in the recent past, but it seems i was either crazy or it has changed.

So, if I sent an iMessage and immediately deleted it off of the iPad, it would still have been sent to his iPhone as well?

Based on my testing (which i just did), sending from an iPhone, syncd with an iPad and a Mac to another iPhone, with all three powered on, deleting the message thread on the orginating device did not remove it from the iPad (or the Mac also running iMessage).. YMMV ..

And probably stayed there after deleting it off of his iPad?
