    Why when you text cretin people it takes forever for imessage to go through & other people you text, it goes through right away? If you turn imessage off, will you both be charged for the message?

    Is that a typo or are you really texting cretin people?

    But to answer your question, yes, an SMS text message will cost you either (1) a "hit" against your message count for the billing cycle, or (2) a "hit" to your cell bill for the "per message" text fee. The charge is levied on both the sender and the receiver.

    The other person might be charged if they don't have a texting plan.

    iMessage depends on data. Slow network - slow sending.

    The network you're connected to is probably slow, which is causing iMessage to perform slowly...SMS is much simpler process, so it doesn't require such an optimized data connection (WiFi or Cellular).
