    It does what it was intended to do without problems. What more do you want?

    I don't know, I can sympathize with OP. I thought it was really cool when it came out and started using it even though I'm on a family messaging plan. It seems to almost work right, it every once in a while, a message gets lost. It almost invariably happens at work (spotty cell service) and, when it happens, it's always something "important" from my wife.

    When I try to explain later on why I'm either ignoring her or forgot to do what she asked, I have trouble claiming that I didn't receive the text because it said "delivered"on her phone.

    It's not worth the friction it causes in my situation. I've turned it off and still use the carrier now. It, on the other hand, is very reliable - though not free. Sometimes you do get what you pay for...

    Tell her I have the same problem. Maybe that'll give you some credit. I keep iMessage turned off for the most part, especially after it taking almost 8 hours to deliver a 5 word message.

    I do think Apple needs to decrease the timeout on iMessage. If it doesn't go in 15 seconds, send it as a text. It currently takes several minutes for it to timeout.

    I must be one of the lucky ones in regard to iMessage because I rarely have a problem with it. It works as it should 98% of the time for me. My wife, daughter, certain relatives and friends all have iPhones and we iMessage each other pretty much without a problem.

    i'm in the same boat as you sometimes, Laura. Its not very often it happens - my imessage does work majority(99%) of the time, but there are times i go to send one, close out - and realize after 15mins or so i havent recd a response-because i dont pay too much attention to my phone sometimes i dont hear it go off, so when i open the msg app i then discover the "!" message send failure thing. Thats when i get annoyed, tap on it and 'send as text msg'

    aaaaand there are a very rare few that i've imessaged, it says delivered, and never really was
