Remember that iMessage does allow you to still send a message as a text. When you tap send quickly tap and hold the message and choose "Send as text message". You can also do this if you try and resend a failed iMessage.

Yea i've been seeing iMessage problems since yesterday and they continue today...



Then again, I've been seeing iMessage problems since iOS 5 beta 1, so it shouldn't come as much surprise.

Cloud computing is nice, but you also need a local mirrored storage. Time Machine/Capsule probably will support iCloud synchronization.

Down here for me too. I sent a message to my wife on her @me.com account and it says it can't deliver it. But sending it to her to her iPhone account sends a text message via the AT&T Text messaging service...which is "green" on the iPhone iMessage app...so it just cost me .25 cents to send it when normally it would be free.

Sending it to her on her @me.com account says "This person cannot be reached by iMessage at this time".

WTF is going on?

Errr, no.

None of my data is stored via the Internet.
None of my data is in the hands of anyone else.
Every piece of my data is stored locally.

Why would I trust a 3rd party with my "only" copy or my "only" means to access my data? That would be beyond dumb.

Oh yes, fully agree, throw a little duplicated data into the cloud for things like an iPad as it has such limited storage space itself. But never "RELY" on the cloud for anything that really matters.

Down in Dallas. It's intermittently letting me send and telling me they're delivered, but the recipient isn't getting them.

This is why I disabled iMessage two months ago. People kept asking why I didn't get the text messages since something happened to my iCloud account. I'll stick to old school texting on this one.

iCloud and iMessage suck. They are the most non-apple products/services to date. Buggy, constant issues, not working, etc.

And the fact that you can't change the email address associated with your account is beyond ridiculous.
