It works for AT&T but still utilizes your phones data plan. If you get on wifi then it's free.

But you can use either number or mail or both to receive iMessages at. Have you tried both by adding the second?




You can only do the opposite, but there is a way around it, if you don't want a charge then turn the phone into flight mode and turn on wifi and send a message to make sure you are not getting charged.

NP.
well it works fine for me! I was quoting some user in here about imessage not working in china.

Yep. It works for me as well here in Beijing. Occasionally, I get the green text bubble instead of the imessage bubble, but most often it just means there is a problem with my network (wifi/3g) connection. Nothing that a power cycle hasn't been able to fix. Though, I do have a friend here in the city who has a Chinese iPhone 4S, but iMessage doesn't work with him so...

iMessage - International SMS

I have been billed for SMS i sent to US from Australia which showed up on my iPhone as iMessage (blue bubble). My Phone and SMS Carrier (Optus ##@$ers) said that SMS may have gone from my phone as iMessage but may not have been received as iMessage (Sounds like loads of rubbish).
Well point is it may depends a lot on your service provider. Try few message and see if in your next bill you are getting charged for it. if not well and good. if you are better use apps like 'VIBER' or 'Whatsapp'. Other person must also have those apps on their smartphone.
