how do you send a phone number that's not in your contact list to someone through a text message?Â I was looking for an option to send a phone number in my recent calls, but not in my contact list, to someone through a text message and i couldn't find one.
Since Apple released iMessage my friend and I have been iMessaging. As of yesterday, I can still send my friend iMessages as usual, but she can only send iMessages to my email (I have "Receive at" set to my phone number and email, Caller ID set to my phone number). If she tries to send an iMessage to my phone number, as she did before, it will only send as a Text. All of my other iPhone contacts can still send iMessages to my phone number. We've each tried rebooting and switching iMessage on and off (we both have iPhone 4, IOS 5.1.1) without any luck. I realise that iMessage is still technically working with her sending to my email, but we just don't understand why sending to my phone number has suddenly stopped working.
Recently my phone began using my email address to send all my test through imessage rather than my phone number. So if I send a tesxt to my son my wife receives the text message as an e mail. How can I fix this?
iMessage is not working to my husband number. We both have the iPhone 4 on orange network but when I select to send him a message to his phone number it only ever sends as a text message, not iMessage. I can send as iMessage if I select his email address instead or if I respond to a message from him.
This is only happening when I'm texting someone using iMessage - it'll say that they sent their message as a text message, but then a few minutes later I'll get their exact same message again, but this time as an iMessage - it's happened with multiple people - it says I'm still in iMessage "mode" but they're in text message mode and then i'll often receive the same message again - this has only started happening recently, and it doesn't happen every time but it happens often and I'm not sure why- has this happened to anyone else?
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?
just set up iMessage on my iMac. Both my wife and i have iphone4s. I can imessage from imac to my iphone. can not imessage to my wife from the imac - i get a message "name is not available for imessage". i can imessage from my 4s to her 4s I must be missing something in the setup of her account.
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.
Why is my iMessage on my iPhone and iPad not working good? My Internet and signals are good but when I send a iMessage to other ppl with iMessage it doesn't go through. It sends it as a text message. Sometimes it will work but most times it won't.
i've got 2 Phones, 1 company and 1 private phone - means 2 different Numbers.Â I've now merged the private phone number now into the company Sim Card, so I've got only 1 phone now instead of 2.Â The main number is now the company number, but i wanna keep my OLD private number with iMessage, etc.Â
both my partner and i have recently purchased an iphone4, when messaging each other some appear in BLUE bubbles and some in GREEN bubbles, why does it change from imessage to text message during the same conversation if we are both registered to imessage services?
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?
If I have my internet/data turned off and iMessage turned on but I have "send as SMS" turned off and my friend who has an iPhone sends me a message and I receive it as a text message, do I get charged? Does she get charged?
On last month I changed my iphone 4 to 4S, after the change I noticed that I can't receive imessages using my phone number, only my apple id was there at "Receive at" field.What should I do to solve this?How can I put my phone number back there?This is happening with Facetime too. But on Facetime the phone number has a "Verifying" status.
