Part 1. Why Is iMessages Not Working on My iPhone/iPad?
iMessage is kind of an answer to Blackberry's Messenger and it is quite different from the traditional multimedia messaging and text messaging as it uses data to share/send messages rather than the text message plans that your cellular service providers offer you. iMessage is an amazing feature as it allows Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod users to send messages without worrying about the 160-character limit associated with text messages or data limits that you have to consider when sending an MMS.
If the message you have sent appears in a blue colored bubble then it was sent via iMessage. However, if it was sent in a green colored bubble then it was send using your normal cellular plan – MMS or SMS. If you have not been able to send an iMessage successfully, first find out if it is that you are not being able to send it only to one user or no one in your contact list at all. If it is just one user then the problem can be on their end and if it is everyone then there is some problem on your end.
So why is iMessage not working on my iPhone? Well, it could be due to various reasons including wrongly configured settings, poor internet connection, the carrier perhaps is not supporting the message you want to send, and so on. Now that we know some of the reasons behind iMessage not working on iPad or iPhone let us get to learn how you can fix the problem.
