Is any one else having problems with iMessage?
lately my messages with my friends with other iPhones are not going through, it either takes for ever to send and then eventually it automatically sends it as a text message or I don't receive any messages when they send me a message. This is getting a bit frustrated.

If it is too slow tomorrow, try turning off iMessage and put your iPhone in Airplane Mode for 30 seconds and turn it back on and see if it's a little faster. if it is too slow after you do that, do a clean restore with iTunes.
hope this helped!

i often have issues where iMessage will cease to work when i'm on wifi (which i always am at home). i will have to toggle the wifi off, send the failed message, then turn wifi back on to get it to operate normally.
to be fair, i'm having a number of issues with iOS 5, there are some instability issues and app issues inherent to the build that need ironing out.

For about 2 weeks now I have been having issues intermittently where I get a red exclamation mark and it states message not delivered. This is when it is running via iMessage, the strange thing is, it doesn't send as a text either, and it won't resend a few seconds later either, I have to manually resend the message. It's only happened maybe 6 times over the last few weeks, but had never occurred before.
In fact today I sent a few messages and didn't hear a response, I then picked up the phone and called to find out what I had sent the text for. When my call connected the text message went through to the person I was contacting. Hopefully this is just a temporary glitch and gets better before it gets worse, nothing worse than unreliable text messages...
I know there is a separate issue with iMessage when you are signed in on multiple devices, it doesn't always send the message to both devices. I also use my email addy as my iMessage account and when I have sent an email from my iPhone it did not get delivered to my email account, however it went through iMessage instead. For that issue I think I may make a separate @me account to solve that little issue, as my intention was for the message to go to my email account.

I've been having problems the last few days getting messages from my daughter (both of us on 4S and 5.0.1). *SOME* of her messages come through about 12 hours late, thus conversations are all out of whack. For instance, at 4pm yesterday I asked what she wanted for dinner. I received a response with 5 minutes that said "I don't". It turns out, that response was from a message the night before. Today at noon, I received a message from her that said "fried rice". This was in response to yesterday's message..
Very strange. We've both rebooted, and I've turned iMessage off on mine. I'll *228 both and see what happens.

I had to swap out my iP4s for a new one the other day. Now, when I iMessage my wife or daughter, I get their response but it won't show on the message screen. In the upper left of the screen it will show 1 message. I have to open it up to see the response. ???????????????

I'm confused by some posts here...my understanding (from Apple's instructions) was that if I have an iPad2 and an iPhone 4s signed in with the same Apple ID, somebody could just send a message to one device but not the other by specifying my phone number (to the iPhone) or email address (to the iPad).
Isn't that right?

I was having an issue with iMessage yesterday. I had to tx my hubby at 3:30 about something VERY important. He has a profession that if he can respond he will, most times he reads it & then calls me later. SO I fig'd he recd my msg but was in a situation that he couldn't respond. Finally at 5:15 when I further updated my msg, he freaked out & was like--I just recd ALL of your msg now. BTW-all of my messages said "delivered" each time too.
That was indeed frustrating !!
Prior to that during the day, my iMessage to my daughter wouldn't send with the "message failed" and "!" in red-I had to physically go in and tap "send as text" because it didn't automatically do it.....
I understand iMessage can be spotty depending in both parties coverage, but what hap'd with my hubby's yesterday I was just smfh because it did say they delivered.
