    Yes, if the message is in blue, then the recipient is using an iPhone (or other compatible device) and using iMessage.

    The "three blinking dots" means that the other person is typing a message. Although this is not 100 percent. They could have the cursor active and then not actually type a message and you might still see the dots. But in general, it means the other person is typing.
