    Default Why are SMS and iMessage separated!?

    I'm new to iOS and don't understand why my messages to my wife (who also uses an iPhone) don't appear together when I open messaging. I have a separate SMS and iMessage thread. I thought they were supposed to be together in the contact? My wife's messages from me whether they are SMS or iMessage, are NOT separate threads ' just separated into green and blue. Help me sort this! Cheers!

    It's possible iMessage is using yours and/or hers iCloud address instead of the cell numbers which would create a separate thread. Make sure your contact cards contain the iCloud email addresses, and also check settings/messages to see if the option for "send & receive" includes your iCloud addresses
