iMessage - I just want it to work

Have looked up what seems like every bit of help for iMessage, but can't get it to work for us. Situation is:
I have an iphone 4GS, latest iOS. iMessage is now working, on my own apple account (email@example.com). Have sim with texts and data included.
Husband has my old iPhone 3GS, updated software, iMessage will not work. Is on another apple account (firstname.lastname@example.org). Has sim with texts and data included, same network as mine.
Bought my son an iPod touch 4th gen, iMessage will not work. On his own apple account (email@example.com)

Have tried resetting network settings. Did total reset on the iPod touch. Have tried to iMessage them from my iPhone. Played around with time & date settings, signing in and out of account, rebooting, changing the DNS, everything.
Have now spent more time trying to make this work than I have actually ever messaging and wondering if there is something I am overlooking before I just give in and make us all use skype messaging. Do you have a 'well nothing worked, then I tried x' suggestion?
