    when i send a iMessage to a buddy with a iPhone it usually sends as a text message anybody have any idea why? only now and then it will send as a iMessage!

    it always sends a iMessage when I'm sending from my iPad or my mac.

    Doesn't it depend on whether your buddy is using wifi or cell??

    From my understanding, if you send a message to another iPhone and they have poor reception, data turned off, or iMessage off, it will be delivered as an SMS text. Also yourMac & iPad can't send a text but will deliver an iMessage regardless and your friend should receive them when one of the previously mentioned are no longer true.
