    iMessage already has this. As soon as you sign into your Facebook account on your iDevice, it shows a photo icon like this! Can Apple improve iMessage?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1400207653.300638.jpg

    Hmm...didn't realize that. I've opted to not allow Facebook to access my contacts. Also, not everyone I msg with is on Facebook. Good to know though thanks.

    The problem with that is it only does that on the iPad.

    I'd be happier if it was more reliable. I hate using it and have turned it off. Even on wifi with a clear signal, it takes forever and a day to send pictures over iMessage.

    I guess apple thinks the screen size is not suitable for that.

    I don't recognize this issue. I use iMessage all the time to send pictures and never had issues.

    I'd rather it be from my contacts like on group message. Don't want Facebook. I can't control which profile photo to use. Most I iMessage with are in my contacts. The others on Facebook I use Facebook Messenger.

    They need a "delivered" notification for SMS. Even my crappy old nokia phone could do that. It's the only huge disappointment I have with iOS.

    My provider supports that by adding a '!' exclamation mark before the actual text

    Improvements can be made on delivering photos on iMessage. They don't go through many times, especially when sent with text or if the photo has been edited or enhanced. Sometimes I have to send the text on a separate message for the photo to go through. It could be my wifi, but I have good speeds. Anyone else have that issue?

    My old nokia phone didn't need an exclamation mark to receive a delivered notification though and it is a pretty dumb phone ha. Seeing a "delivered" notice within the message itself would be really nice.

    I would like to see better synchronization throughout iMessage. If I delete a message or thread on my phone, I would like for it to delete the message on my iPad and vice versa. It's the feature that I crave most.

    Maybe sending photos n videos should be faster. It sucks when you have to wait n wait when sending, especially multiple photos n all that

    I hate it when a photo doesn't go through at all. This usually happens when there's text with it. The bar stops about 3/4 the way across.

    Sometimes it helps to take a screen shot of the photo, then send the screen shot. It reduces the pixel size which helps it go through. The downside is lower quality photos. Also, I sometimes send the message on a separate text from the photo.

    Just get a blackberry passport, BB Blend i have installed on my pc, ipad, and nexus 7, all at the same time, and i can do whatever i want with it , it goes through my phone via wifi, usb or cell network. Begin Flame.
    No "flame" is necessary. You've made your recommendation and there is nothing wrong with it. Enjoy the rest of your day.
