Yup. There's a couple analyses that make it easy to look at the service status at the macro level. Not talking about Apple's green light service site, but there are some others. Source forge, etc.

Think about the last 10 years in technology. Do remember what truly failed services looks like. iMessage isn't one of them.

Who cares? SMS is just as good as iMessage. The receiver still gets the same text.

Funny Stuff

Maybe I'm missing a feature here for iMessage, because I own a Nexus4 and BB. So are people saying its okay for iMessage to send by SMS if carrier network is not available. Its funny how Apple has conditioned y'all to accept this.

With my BBM, which I don't use anymore as my contacts have dwindled to nothing, the message gets through to BBM with either carrier network OR WiFi. The reason I find sending an SMS not acceptable is it's not secure, and you don't get a notification if the message was delivered and read!

Yes! SMS is just as good. In fact, how about disable iMessage once and for all in your iPhone? Text is just as good, remember?

To me, failures on getting text sent through iMessage shows how incompetent and unreliable this service is.
People survived for decades with only SMS. What's wrong with it except you can't send photos once in a while? Or maybe some snarky emoticons?

People seem to praise iPhone as revolution on smartphone industry, but forget their roots. If there was no BBM, there won't be iMessage. Simple as that!

Proof?
Apple didn't have the decency to put iChat in iPhone until it sees BBM's success. If anything, iMessage is too little too late.
Apparently iOS is a follower as well

To me, having BBM in my iPhone is just a great addition and improve versatility. And it's free too! I honestly don't know why people whine about it?

This is BB trying to keep their customers happy because they have no one to text using BBM. I hear the argument time and again that BB is the "most common phone internationally", so what..most of people that have a BB here in the US have it for business and still have a separate cell phone for personal use. It's too little too late for BB to rejoin the smart phone market since they don't seem able to revolutionize any smart phone feature. Perhaps BBM is their only asset, it sure isn't the phone itself.

HA ! So because in the US "most" people use BB only for bussines it doesnt matter that it is "the most common phone internationally ? If BB dont sell a lot of phones in the states that means its doomed and will vanish....

Get a grip mate.
