    This has been an issue in iOS 6. It takes a while to recognize the other person
    on iMessage. The good news is that it has no longer been an issue for me as
    I haven't had this problem anymore on iOS 6.1 beta 1

    Does it say waiting for activation ? Try turning off then on ..
    LTE will use more battery then being on wifi

    The issue that you're reporting of your phone not recognizing other iMessage users.

    It's an iOS 6 issue. People have reported it on here, including myself.
    It takes a while during the conversation for the phones to recognize
    each other. It is an issue. Now that I'm on 6.1 beta, this issue is resolved
    for me. If you claim you're on 6.1 and still have the issue, I don't know what
    to tell you.

    Resetting network connections cures a lot of problems. I'd sure do that before doing a restore. I've had this problem intermittently like a lot of people. I've also heard that sometimes a poor signal will cause iMessage to turn off. PJ
