    Honestly, iMessage might be the most important iOS feature for me. I have many group messages ongoing and they are seamless. All of my friends in my groups have iPhones so it is even better. I could never get group messaging to work like iMessage while on android no matter what messaging app I used. I also love that I can type long messages that don't break apart after 160 characters, I love sending videos that won't buffer out and distort. I text a LOT, and iMessage is vital in my day-to-day.

    it makes no difference. It's turned on yes. But I just "send a text." I don't care what pipleline it goes through. It get's delivered either way. NOBODY i've ever met in real life has ever said the words iMessage to me. They "text" me. It goes through the text app. And everyone pretty much has unlimited texting so they don't need any special services. Other people that need to text between countries i'm sure it's some sort of big deal. For me, i only know it's being used cause i see the blue. Other than that it's not even a thought. I don't know what phones most of my friends have. We don't hang around talking about phone brands. I have Whatsapp installed. I've never gotten a message on it. I had text messages before iphone and if i wanted to send a message i typed it and hit send. Now i have an iphone and i type the message and hit send. There's no change for me. I'm doing the same thing. It's not my concerned whether it goes by regular text or imessage. So for me, it's not a big deal. It's fine. i have it turned on. I know what it is but i don't care about it.

    I like the features that it has. Like bein able to send video and gifs. Also getting deliver confirmation is cool. iMessage seems more capable than regular text messaging but out of the people I do send text messages to, is about 50/50 out of who has iphone and who doesn't. So it's whatever to me. As long as they can get my messages.

    I have loved iMessage since day one. Even with the time stamp issues being able to text from my phone, iPad or Mac was awesome. Almost all of my friends are on iOS so it wasn't a huge deal. Now with continuity I can text my green bubble friends as well, it is just about perfect.

    I use it because it's there. I find it to be less reliable than texting or unfortunately other "message" apps like WhatsApp and *ack* Facebook Messenger. Tonight was an example. For some reason, the iMessage from a family member didn't hit my iPhone or iPad, and it wasn't until I opened my MBP that I saw it there. (It still hasn't appeared on the iPhone or iPad.) All the devices are setup to receive using the same emails addresses and phone number, so I don't know what the deal is. Also, I've noticed lately when traveling that after getting off the plane, it is inevitable that my first attempt at iMessage will fail. Doesn't matter if it's 3 minutes or 3 hours after turning off airplane mode. I can surf, email, etc., so it's not a data connection issue. It's just the way it's been for the past couple months. \_(ツ)_/

    I love it! My girlfriend back in England has my old 5S and I have my iPhone 6 here in the USA and we can chat easily and quickly without it costing either of us a penny. Coupled with FaceTime, it means I can see the love of my life every day. It was the sole reason I gave her my 5S in the first place, otherwise, I would have kept it and brought it out here with me to use (it's unlocked, my 6 currently isn't until March 19).

    Most of my contacts out here also have iPhones too, so for me, iMessage is just brilliant.
