Configuring network settings in iPhone 4s IOS 5 to use iMessage

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have tried configuring the network settings on my iPhone 4s IOS 5 so that I would be able to use the iMessage but I am still not getting this service. Not even turning this feature on and off could help. Whenever I send a message to a colleague the blobs are green instead of blue. I am wondering if I am the only one with such a problem and is there some way to correct this abnormality?

Hi Isabella,

iMessage is a service provided by Apple for its users using iOS 5 be it iPhone and iPad. You should have a network connection that is always available for it to work. This works over the connection like WiFi or 3G and not against your text message plan.

You also need to make sure that all the person’s devices you are sending a message to be using the same iOS 5 and have iMessage activated. This will not work if you have iMessage activated on one and not on the other. Each device needs to have their own apple ID for the settings and messages be separate and distinct.

Did you set it up correctly? It's very simple. Try the following steps:

1. Go to your iPhone Settings and tap Messages.

2. Under the Messages window, the first option is to slide the iMessage to on or off. Turn it on to enable iMessage.

enable iMessage

3. iMessage will automatically get your phone number or Apple ID or both. Edit the information. You can also add an additional email address so iMessage can reach you anywhere.

4. To start using it, just tap the usual message icon and it will work automatically when you are messaging another iOS 5 devices.

The correct colors for iMessage messages are blue and the Normal SMS colors are green. If it doesn't work automatically, check your 3G and WiFi connections. And also, check if you are sending it with people using the same iOS 5 devices. Because if they don't, it won't work correctly. Ensure that you already enabled the service.
