Can you help me with iMessage-related problem I've been having since updating to iOS 8?
I've been having problems with iMessages ever since updating to iOS 8. I can't seem to send or receive any iMessages from my iPhone, also when I try to send an iMessage it didn't even try to send it as an iMessage and sends straight as a text. Usually I'd just wait and see if an update comes out and fixes it but I've been working with a apple tech for about a month now and haven't found a solution. I recently found out that some important messages for my work are being sent via iMessages and I've been unable to revive them. If anyone can help me I'd be eternally grateful!
Also if this isn't the right place to post this, I'm sorry. This is my first post.
Things I've tried so far-
Turning iMessages/FaceTime off and on
Signing out of and back into my Apple ID
Reseting my phone as a new iPhone
Reseting the network settings
I have an iPhone 5s running iOS 8.1

We apologize for not answering your question in a timely manner
First off if your using iMessage but your intended recipient is using a device from another platform it will automatically send as an SMS(green).
It seems you pretty much covered all the advised steps for fixing this issue but don't fret one of our members will be by to hopefully find a fix for this mystery
