I am exchanging some messages with friends and family that live in Europe. The problem is, occassionaly, the iPhone will give up as sending as an iMessage and then send as a text. As a result, I am being charged for sending an international message, when I would rather just write an email or skype (if iMessage wasnt going to do its job). Is there anyway to set strictly iMessage to certain contacts?
I recently unlocked my iPhone 4s 4.11.08 on iOS 5.0.1 on working on a tmobile network. My friend has the iPhone 4s fully updated on AT&T. The problem is that she can send me iMessages and I receive them but when I try to reply it says "not delivered".
Just purchased my IPhone yesterday and can't send out any text messages. I went into imessage and it keeps saying "waiting for activation". I've done everything that the Apple support said to do. Also what several websites have recommended. I'm almost thinking of taking it back and getting my old phone reactivated.
I cannot send or receive texts at home because there is insufficient service at my house so I use iMessage over wifi. The issue is that when I am on wifi and out of service the phone will not send iMessages or texts over wifi unless the phone is in Airplane mode. Does anyone know how to make wifi the default iMessage so that I can send iMessages over wifi without going to Airplane mode? It tries to send them but it acts as if there is no service when I have full wifi and as soon as I switch to Airplane mode and keep wifi connected, all messages send fine.
Not sure where to post this question but very often my iMessages "fail" (ie: they end up being sent as SMS).Assuming the recipient does not have iMessaging switched off ?does it only work on WiFi and 3G?
When I search for someone with a home, work and mobile number I'm only ever going to text the mobile (or iPhone) numbers. Anyone know of a way to filter it so that only they show up? I'm assuming it would be possible to tweak that on a jailbroken phone.
i have noticed that after switching to ios 5.1 my phone has been acting funny. for example: when i am messaging other iphone users with iMessage, it keeps switching from iMessage to regular text every 2 or 3 messages. at first i thought it was the other person since i am normally within my works wifi network and at my home wifi network, but it seems that this problem only occurs to other people when imessaging with me and not with anyone else. and this problem occurs to me while imessaging everyone, so i have come to the conclusion that the problem must be my phone. i have noticed this problem to occur since updating to ios 5.1. has anyone else experienced this problem? what can i do? i am 2 steps shy of reinstalling my phone.
If I try to send an E-mail to a Hotmail address with a 1.2 MB picture in it, the Nokia 6700 indicates after a very long time that the message is not deliverable due to network issues. What is the reason, is the picture too big? Or is it a provider-related issue?
When I send a picture through iMessage, sometimes it takes up to 3-4 minutes to send. Sometimes when I text using MMS/iMessage, it takes a minute or so for the sending bar to make the swoosh noise. Kind of weird it takes that long to send a message, and it's not all the time. Is this normal? Any help would be great.
I have a Lumia 800 and have discovered a bug where the recipient name is wrong if contacts have very similar phone numbers. Example:
I have two contacts with the following phone numbers Contact 1. - 0703 246 802 Contact 2. - 0705 246 802 Note that the only thing differing the contacts is 0703 from 0705.
Regardless of whom of these two I send a text message they always show as being sent to Contact 1. This includes any History as well, they are all grouped into Contact 1 regardless of to which phone number I send the text message to. This is very annoying and it makes it impossible to see who actually had the message sent to when looking back at the history. I have tried moving the numbers around to different contact categories, changing contact name and so on, but it has made no difference to the behavior.
My wife has a Droid X which has recently started acting up in the last few weeks. Using the stock Text Messaging app, when she responds to a text message, the receipent name and number is not the person who sent it, but someone else (usually someone she texted with recently). Sending it, it goes to the wrong person. Turning off/on the phone only helps for a short time, as it happens rather quickly again. I have done a Factory Reset on the phone twice and still it happens. I have even gone as far as installing Handcent and she still has the issue, but many times it will show the correct receipent name, but goes to someone else.
i recently got an iPhone 5s running iOS 7.1.2 for my birthday. I'm having no trouble sending/receiving texts from non-Apple devices, however when I try and send a text message to a friend with an iPhone (running IOS7) it sends through iMessage. I hate iMessage. I don't want it. I just want to send an SMS to my friends... What's wrong with that?
