So ever since yesterday my iMessages have not been delivered and instead send as text messages. This happens both on wifi and data and I've tried restarting, rebooting, turning iMessage on and off, starting a new conversation, everything. I have no idea what to do now and it's really frustrating. Every now and then it'll send 1 as an iMessage then just go back to sending as a text. Can someone pleaseeeee help.

It could be the other peron on the other end that has data/wifi connection issues and when it fails it sends as sms

Have u tried updating the iOS.? I was having the same problem and I updated to 9.0.2 and it seems to be working fine. Sometimes if u turn iMessage off and back on it works too.

Just a thought.

It's not the other person cause it does the same for every person with iMessage. It'll send but won't say delivered but the other person gets it anyways and then it sends as text. And yes I updated last night hoping it would help but the problem is still there.
