Hi. Iphone 4s, 1 year old...

I went away over christmas to spain, when I got back in the UK my imessage messed up.

It's turned on now, but will not send as blue imessage.

I have tried loads of things.

Restarting the phone, signing into my apple id account etc.

Anyone any ideas on this?

Friends get my messages (in green) and they reply (in blue maybe) and I don't get it, and theres loads of 'Bro you getting my messages or what' talk going on.

aNY HELP WOULD BE ACE.

thanks.

Thanks.

Too many devices to list
Go to Settings - Messages and make sure iMessage is on.it sounds like it was simply switched off at some point.

I have this too. If I send a message to an iPhone it goes as an SMS if I use the phone number. I can force it use use iMessage by sending it to the email address associated with the recipient's iCloud account, so that's what I am doing.

It used to work properly even when you used the phone number, but seemed to break around the time of upgrading to iOS 8.
