I have the iPhone 6. Why can't I receive text message when I'm not on wifi. I turned on the setting in messages for sending a text when iMessage is not available.

If you are texting another iPhone it sometimes wont send as a text if the other person has their iMessage off. Try clicking on the actual text a couple of times and sending as text then it should always text.

Good Luck

You need data to send an iMessage using iPhone, or to send a picture message on any phone.
