    The blue indicates an iMessage and will only display the color blue when texting other iPhone users with iMessage enabled. The green indicates an SMS message.

    2. When i look on my current usage on my Verizon bill it doesnt look like all the text i sent are on there.

    iMessages are not SMS messages and thus, should not display on your wireless bill or wireless carrier's site.

    It should be the same on both bills, as long as iMessage is connected then it send via data and doesn't count against your text messages.

    Also, there are times when a message is allegedly sent as an iMessage and displays the blue color, but after end up being sent via SMS and changes to the green color. Furthermore, if the recipient of an i-device does not have iMessage enabled then your message will be sent via SMS.

    And if you don't want it to send as a text if iMessage fails you can simply make sure that option is off in the message settings.
