IPhone :: Why Does Imessage Keep Switching From Text To Imessage

Apr 7, 2012

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.

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

IPhone :: Is IMessage Free If You Text Between 4 Using AT

May 3, 2012

I have the iPhone 4 with 3G. I don't use my phone all that much...use iMessage approx. 3x/week, and I listen to iHeart Radio at home on wifi. This is my issue:  I got a notice that I was over my data usage and will be billed $15.  My questions are...is iMessage free when you text between iPhones on AT&T?  Does IHeart Radio use data?  I feel that I might have my settings wrong because my sister says she uses iMessage all e time and NEVER goes over her data.   How can I check my data usage so I don't go over again?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

IPhone :: Only Send As An Imessage, Never As A Text?

May 6, 2012

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?

IPhone :: Imessage In Different Window Than Text Messages?

May 1, 2012

Usually when I write an sms it shows up green and imessages shows up blue, and they both show up chronologically in the same window. I.e. my iphone understands it is from the same person and therefor post both types of messages in the same window. However a month ago or so my boyfriends imessages started showing up in a seperate window from his regular green text messages... Why? We have changed no settings of any sort. Nothining has been altered, and on his iphone both types of texts show up in the same window. My other iphone contacts also show up in the same window with both green an blue texts. How come his dont? His email as such is not a part of his contact details, i did however try adding it to see if that would help make the messages go in the same window but it didnt He has a iphone 3s i have 4, (not s).All I want is for the blue and the green messages to live together in perfect harmony within one window...

IPhone :: Prevent It From Using Text Message With An IMessage?

May 17, 2012

I would like to know how I can turn off iPhone's iMessage system and just send regular text messages to other iPhone users.Here's why.On two separate occassions I have missed a date with the same guy because we would send each other messages, and get no reply.  Why?  Because the iPhone appears to choose to send it as an iMessage.But because one or the other isn't connected to a wireless port at the time it doesn't go through.so we're both waiting for the other to reply and it never happens.So we assume the other is asleep, phone died, whatever and plans are automatically cancelled.We take the train home and then iMessage floods both of our phones with 30 minutes worth of texts. 

I would like to have the ability to send a text as a text message, and only send an iMessage when I choose it to be the wiser of two methods of sending a text.iMessage is not my preffered method of sending a text because it doesn't work as well.It does a terrible job of letting me know when it can't send and it utilizes wifi which is less abundant than the network I'm on.Moreover I have unlimited texts with my plan.So I don't understand the point of a phone automatically trying to send texts through wifi when it doesn't work as well,inadvertantly cancels my date twice, and leaves me bitter and ALONE at home again.So do I have an option to just send texts as regular texts?  Or is this a new feature that I can't control?

IPhone :: Why Do Some IMessage Texts Change To Regular Text Messages

May 15, 2012

Sometimes when I text another person who has an iPhone the text message switches from iMessage to a regular text message -- from a "blue" message to a "green" one (if you know what I mean). I do not have an unlimited texting plan, so this means it counts against my 200 text limit. Does anyone know why this happens and if there is a setting I need to adjust?

when I send a picture message to someone with an iPhone 4s who doesn't have wi fi on, the message goes as a text message. This is fine for normal text messages but pictures are expensive to send.
