I just want to see if I have this straight from the people who have been using iOS 6. I get the unification of phone numbers and Apple ID, and this makes iMessage viable for the way I use my equipment. They talk about sync between devices for iMessage on the Apple site, but I wanted clarification. If I send someone an iMessage, it shows up on all my devices and if I receive one it's the same. HOWEVER. I live out in the sticks, and often have phone signal, but no data connection and this confuses the **** out of iMessage, so I send an SMS instead. Now I know that SMS will only sent to a phone number, but my question is this, will it send from my phone to someone else's phone, then get synced to their other devices, or does the sync exclude SMS and MMS messages? I hope that makes sense. I really hope it works this way.
