Has it just happened all of a sudden?

Are you sure that the person you're trying to iMessage is on WiFi or has Data enabled?

My dad is guilty of a similar situation. He's a worry wart and has his data off all the time. It's kind of funny really because I always know when he's home because my iMessages send successfully. They revert to text if he's out and about.

It doesn't sound like it's an issue with your phone though.

I have no idea, all I know is that it happened suddenly this morning, I tried everything I could to fix it, i tried turning my phone on and off, i tried turning iMessaging on and off, i deleted the contact and readded him and I even put my email adress as a send and receive option. It has been frustrating me because my iMessages to him have been sending as text messages and I don't know if he has been receiving them or not

If they sent as texts he's receiving them. He's probably just off of WiFi and has Data disabled.


I wouldn't worry about it too much it's definitely not an issue with your phone.


Also, if they're turning green and sending as texts he's getting them. Unless the texts are coming back failed. Which would prompt a red notification under/beside the text itself.
