Messages are coming through as SMS instead of iMessage (intermittently)
I have an odd problem. I frequently message 2 people using the Messages app. We all have iPhones on iOS5 and we all have iMessage turned on. 90% of the time, messages come through as iMessages (blue bubble), but occasionally, a message will come through as an SMS (green bubble) for no reason.
We all only have one phone number (each) and one Apple ID (each) associated with our individual phones, pretty standard set up. I can't think of any other explanation except that perhaps the iMessage server has been down intermittently, causing the messages to go through as SMS instead.

If there is a drop in the data connection it will automatically send as an SMS (if it is enabled in settings). It happens to me all the time when I am texting/iMessaging in the Metro and I go underground. It's supposed to happen that way, unless you turn it off in message settings (there is a "Send as SMS" option that you can toggle off).
