When it's blue, you're texting someone with an iOS 5 iPhone and iMessage kicks in. It is not taken out of your regular text message plan, but your data I believe. When the bubbles are green, the person does not have an iPhone with iOS 5 and it will be taken out of your messaging plan. There is no way to turn it on or off.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong

The question I have about iMessage is this:
So if you have an iPhone and iPad syncing on the iCloud and someone on another iPhone iMessages you to your Phone number is it supposed to sync on your iPad? Because I can't seem to get that to work. But if I go from an iPhone and iMessage to an email address that is setup on iMessage on the iPad it goes to the iPad but not to the iPhone. How do you get them to all be synced?
John's iPhone sends iMessage to Paul's phone number, no message on Paul's iPad, only Paul's iPhone. If John's iPhone sends iMessage to Paul's email, Paul's iPad gets the message and not Paul's iPhone.
Hope this makes sense? Can anyone help me out?
