    Default Re: imessage inconsistency

    It's possible that some of those people with iPhones have not enabled iMessage on their devices... it's not automatic. iMessage has to be turned on on the device by its user.

    Default imessage inconsistency

    The other person also has to be using an Apple device. If you send and it's green, then the other person does not use an idevice, unless they have iMessage turned off or their phone is powered off.
