IPhone :: My Imessaging Is Sending Text As Weird Symbols To A Select Few People?
Apr 23, 2012
I have the new iphone 4s. Recently I have been talking to other iphone users but the imessage takes a long time and then results in sending a text message. Usually this is fine but now these people are writing me back and saying that my phone is just sending them weird symbols and numbers instead of my intended message. if I turn off imessage, my texts seem to be fine but I would like to be able to use imessage still.
I am using CHOMP SMS app for my texting. Yesterday I sent a text to Joe, Bob, Jim. Just like that in the TO block. When they sent replys they all got each others reply to read. I didn't want that. That is whey I sent it the way that I did instead of sending it as a GROUP message. Is there a setting in CHOMP or the regular app to make it so everyone does not see each others replys?
I've noticed that some times when I get text messages from certain contacts, the way it shows up on my informs me that it was sent to myself and X amount of people (and I can view those numbers/contacts if I have them). But what's annoying is when I try to reply to "said person" it replies to all contacts that recieve the message. Now if I hold down the message and get options, I can view the details and open the message/delete the message, and I can Reply to All... but it never lets me just reply to that person. There is no option for it. I just reply and they all get it.
Like I stated before, this is not every time I get a mass text message from someone. Some of my friends have iPhone 4s so I tested it last night with a friend sending out a text to two of us and when I received it there was no indication that it had been sent to multiple people. Also have another friend that does this a lot with his Droid 2, no issue with his either. I'm wondering if this is happening because of the way it's being sent to me (and others) but even if I can see who else it was sent to, I'd still like the option to just reply to one person.Any advice on this? I foresee people telling me to get another text messaging app though which makes me think AT&T/Motorola should really add a lot more features to their text messaging app just incase of the people that would like options..
So theres something going on with iMessage. I send an iMessage but after some time i see that was sent out as a regular text message ive had friends from around the globe say that the same thing is happening with them.
Using an iPhone 5s, I took a photo and sent it to one of my contacts. I have several email accounts and the default one is my gmail account. When I selected the photo and chose to email it, the sending email account in the new email message was my gmail account. However, as soon as I selected the recipient, the sending email account changed to my outlook.com instead of the gmail one. I didn't realize this at the time so when I sent the photo, it sent using my outlook.com account instead of the gmail. I use the outlook.com account more for work related emails, so I don't want personal email messages to go through that account. I've been able to replicate this sending email account switching for this particular recipient both on my iPhone and on my iPad mini.┬
I've run into a similar situation when using Mac Mail on my MacBook - new emails are sent as from my Outlook.com account instead of the default gmail account. However, I've not been able to identify a particular reason for this. In the Mac Mail Preferences, Composing settings, I have selected to send new mail from my gmail account, not the account of the selected mailbox.┬ This seems to be a recent development on both the MacBook and on my iOS devices. Both iOS devices are running version 7.1.2. The MacBook is on OSX 10.9.4.┬
Why would iOS mail change the sending email account based on the recipient, when sending a picture? It doesn't seem to consistently happen when just starting a new mail message from within the mail app. Why would this happen for just some recipients (so far I've just identified one in particular, who is on a comcast.com email account). Why would MacMail on the MacBook send new mail from the outlook.com account when the default is gmail?
I Work in a hospital setting and often need to communicate with emergency personnel, the group consists of approx 40-50 people. I would like to assign all these contacts into an immediately accessible text group. I know about enabling groups under the settings tab, but selecting individuals each time is cumbersome and defeats the STAT nature of the messaging.
okay so for the past few months whenever I text people, they text back saying they get the message as a bunch of symbols or jibberish. It doesn't happen every time but it happens often. I went to verizon and they told me they couldn't help me and gave me the number to customer support which I have yet to call?
I just got the IPhone 4 yesterday and connot send text messages to anyone without an Iphone, so the iMessage is working, but not normal text messaging... how do I fix this??? SMS is turned on in settings, even tried turning the phone on and off, but still not working.
Update to Gingerbread: I am unable to select text that is off the screen in a non-wrapping text box as exists in the browser search window. The cursor selector goes to the end of the visible part of the text box but the remaining text does not scroll to the right for editing purposes. Before when the magnifying glass was used, the text would scroll.
i have not been receiving all text message for 3 days now. yet my network provider is saying there is nothing wrong with my phone as i could receive their test messages they sent to my phone. I have had a replacement sim card and network reset. I am having the same problem with several people, of who i receive some text messaes from them, but not all.
I was able to select and then copy / cut text from a mobile webpage in internet explorer (like name details etc. when I replied to a person) with the SHIFT button, but it is not working anymore...When I now press the SHIFT button, the ┤mouse┤ appears again and I am not able to select the text anymore..
when both have their imessage turned on, i can text my gf and her daughter also gets my text and can reply. any text that any of the 3 of us send, we all can see in the same thread. how do we sop this from happening while leaving imessage turned on on all 3 phones? this doesnt seem to happen with any other iphone/imessage users, only me
Whenever i receive a text message, a ringtone then text tone sounds. But when i go into 'Settings > Sounds > Text Tones' it shows i have selected one text tone and one ringtone. The ringtone it shows i have selected is not the one that plays when i receive a message,how to remove the ringtones from my text messages all together!...Iphone 5C. IOS 7.1.2
I am trying to figure out how to create a group so I can just select the group when I am sending certain e-mail.I have created a group in the address book but the only way to select that group is when I am going to send MMS.I have tried selecting it for e-mail and it doesn't work.
I'm not sure why this is and i have tried pretty much everything. people can only hear me when i have my phone on speaker phone.. i cant afford a new iphone since they are like $600 without an upgrade.
I have been trying to send a text to just one person and just enter in his contact information; however it seems that the text then gets sent to additional people as well. Is there a way in settings to make sure this does not happen again.
I changed the iCloud account on my iPhone 3gs because my friend gave me her old one and it won't let me use my email address for iMessaging. It was her email address so I changed it to mine and all it says now is waiting for activation.
