    If they have iOS devices or Macs with Lion, your text message will automatically go as an iMessage. If they don't, there's no way to send them an iMessage.

    Well for me the way I know I am sending an iMessage is when you send that person a message if it's an iMessage the send button will be blue but if it's just a regular text or anything else the send button will be green

    Please excuse my ingorance (BB phone, iPod user), as I only have an iPod, I am aware that I can only send via iMessage but just out of curiousity, if sent via iPhone, you aren't certain if sent via text or iMessage?

    What if you save their apple ID email as a separate acct like "john imessage" and then the imessage would go to the email and not the phone. That would get rid of the fear of international texting fees
