    Is there a photo where someone who can't upgrade to iOS 5 can see it?

    I can't stand the green send button and the new bubbles. Am I alone?
    You're completely alone. Even if someone says you're not alone, they're just lying to make you feel better.

    If I were a drone, BLiNK, I'd agree with you. But since I'm not, unfortunately, I'm not allowed to.

    I hate the iMessage feature all but the UI.
    I think there should be a separation between Text and IMing between iOS devices. They should be two different apps.
    Anyone agree with me?

    I disagree. When I had a blackberry I set up ALL of my contacts, blackberry or no, into BBM so that when I had to message or text them I had one place to go to do it. It drove me NUTS having to remember whether I had to text so and so or BBM them. Personally I much prefer having them in one app. Why would you prefer it in two? I can't think of a reason lol

    I like the fact that it's automatic and all in the message app. I hated having to swap between BBM and SMS app back in the the day.

    +3 I like that I can iMessage a contact if I have data, but it will automatically switch to an ordinary text when I don't. And I don't have to keep track of which of my contacts have an iPhone.

    It's simple and elegant.

    I'd have to agree. Looks like the same thing to me, just green instead of blue. Actually looks better, although I really don't care what color they make it as long as it works.

    I like the combined SMS & iMessage, as for the green and blue separation I think it works ver well & requires no thought which is fantastic for this Drone.

    Why? As it is, it's simple and intuitive. Type a message to a messaging partner and let the technology sort out the how, where and why. Having to remember which messaging client you need to use for which messaging partner is way more effort than should be required. Just open it, pick a recipient and message them. What could be more simple?

    Why? Making it integrated allows users to automatically start saving their SMS messages without even knowing it.

    Well, seeing as from a visual design standpoint is IS better looking (this standpoint defined by design styles popular now amongst people and designers alike) it's a pretty safe bet.

    And Jello meant saving as in not using. When you iMessage, you don't use up text messages that might be limited by a person's plan. Not saving as in downloading or keeping on the phone.

    I like the green button thing as well however it will depend on consumers will perceive the whole design change because nowadays it all at the end boils down the consumers and their perception at the end of the day which counts the most.

    Nothing I said suggested it was a fact. You're inferring from non-existent evidence. Opinions ARE opinions, but when a large majority of people knowledgeable on a subject agree on something, it usually caries more weight. People tend to like what is popular (since it can't be popular without people liking it) and the iOS SMS redesign fits in better with the evolving "web 2.0" design style which is immensely popular right now. As in, most people like it. As in, those who hate it are probably in a small minority. Hence ghostface's comment.
