iMessaging has been fine until this last week, and now, 75% of the time any imessages don't send to my girlfriend - they don't change to delivered either - they just sit there, in blue, but not sent or delivered.
We have both restored our phones and backed up from icloud - this didnt fix anything.
We both changed our imessage "recieved at" email addresses yesterday - to make our tests weren't sending from the old attached email account, I'd send a message to her, then get her to reply and vice versa - basically to make sure it was the newly setup email (as I believe there's a propogation period when adding a new email to imessage?) - either way, this didn't work.
I've tested via my ipad2 - shockingly enough, this didn't work.
We have no problem iMessaging anyone else with an iPhone however to each other it does not work. On her phone the bubbles are still green despite the fact that we both have wifi on and iMessage on yet on mine it will be blue and say delivered but she doesnt recieve anything? However what I have noticed is that on her phone she has no other options such as the 'Send Read Receipts', 'Sent as SMS' or the 'Receive at' which from what ive tested with on my other iPhone friends do have so at first i thought that would be the problem but it can't be because like I said she has no difficulty messaging anyone else with an iPhone. (Same with FaceTime which i figured wouldnt work because they work the same way..I think?) I've tried everything and somehow it still doesnt work?
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
A friend in Thailand is trying to use iMessage with an iPad, the iMessage has been working OK up to 2 weeks ago but now it will neither send or receive iMessage. She has: signed out and back in to iMessage checked that the email address is correctly registered turned iCloud off and back on Done a hard reset of the device Has the latest ios installed. iMessages sent to her phone show as 'sent' but no longer as delivered.
I send a imessage to another iphone, a little while later it changes to a regular SMS text message. I have turned on imessaging on both phones. i went to the Apple store and of course it wored when I tested there.
Every once in awhile, i will receive my imessages in my email account. Most of the time it will work properly, but those rare occasions it sends the other party's response to my email account and does not show up in the imessage window at all. like it was not even sent. my apple id is based off a regular email account like yahoo, gmail, or hotmail. how can I make it stop doing this? I want to be able to communicate properly and use my other idevices too. please help... would it just be better to start a whole new apple id with just a specific email acct desginated just for that?
I have blocked my ex's phone number through my phone service provider, but he is still able to send me messages through imessage as if he is not blocked. Apparently, apple uses it's own server seperate from the carrier. How do I block his imessages without completely blocking the ability to use the imessage feature?
i have been using imessage for months now and then today it is sending from my email address rather than my mobile number. i have tried turning imessage off then back on, turning it off then turning my phone off and back on then switching it back on. anyone know how i can change it to send from my phone again?
Is my wi-fi supposed to be turning on and off all the time? That frustrates me! iMessage won't even let me send messages! i type in the contact name, then type my message but it wont let me click in 'send.'
When using iMessage, is it normal for it to be sent as an email? My friends with iPhones will txt me and when I txt back it starts a new conversation entirely with my email as the contact. Is there a way to set it to my phone number? When I recieve iMessages it's never an email.
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. Is there any way to set it so it sends normal text messages if the receiver has no wi fi but never sends picture messages as text?
I just have question about sending an SMS to the same person more than once. I've got OS 22.214.171.1243. I'm pretty sure it's been doing this for a while. I can't remember if it used to worked with older OS's.Anyway, here's my problem. When I enter the same person's name 10 times, it seems to work, but then it doesn't show all the names
When I go to text certain contacts, it puts their number in the To: field mulitple times. For instance, I go to text Joe Shmoe, I click okay and it ends up sending 7 of the same texts out! I have tried deleting field, but it wont let me.
I have read some solutions about the problem of having the SMS one thread issue, but I really have a different problem.My incoming SMS, comes under different person name, as Example when I have to SMSs from two Users User (A) and User (B), the sms sent from user (A) shows up in the thread of User (B) which is a big mess.
More over when I choose options >> View Folders >> SMS Inbox Then I can see the real sender of the SMS but still when I press open or delete, I can't do anything
I updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 5.1 when it was released. My friend updated his iPhone 4S delayed, yesterday. Before yesterday iMessage worked well between our iPhones.But since my friend updated to iOS 5.1 as well, iMessage does not work anymore between our two iPhones.iMessage works well with all other adresses we both use as well. But only our two iPhones cannot use iMessage anymore.
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.
So far:I've reset it many many times (holding the home button & top button until the apple appears)Updated to the latest software.Let it "die" before giving it a full charge.Reset the settings.It started off being only a few certain people being unable to hear me, but now it's everyone
I just bought this phone tnight and when I got home I discovered that none of the pics, phone number, text messages or voice mails are mine. I have another person's information. How can I fix this? The store is closed.
I've been trying to figure out what the limit on the iphones will be. I've looked around but I'm still a little confused. I want to open a new account with 2 lines for my brother and I. I've read two different things: There is a limit to one phone per account vs There is a limit on 1 phone per person. Which one is it? Because if it's the latter, that would mean we'd both be able to get one. we will both be present at time of purchase.
