    iMessage is sweet and all, but when you have the crappiest data connection, I just wanna send an SMS. Is it likely Apple will ever let the user chose what type of message is sent in the app itself? It could be implemented easily, like press and hold the send button to change between green and blue or something? Or something better than that? Opinions please!!

    You can already do that. Press and hold the sent iMessage and select "Send as Text Message"

    It must be noted that this can only be done while it's being (attempted to be) delivered as an iMessage.

    I think holding down on the send button to select the type would be very confusing and unwanted by most users. iMessage is great because it is so seamless. Tapping send as text message only takes about a second, so I think the current setup is perfect.

    I dunno, I think that the times it sends a message but tells me it failed aren't really "fine."

    They should probably do something about that.

    Resolution is to switch to a carrier that provides a solid data connection. This is not Apple's problem to fix.

    No, Apple is the one that programmed the phone to display a status when, in actuality, the status is unknown.

    iMessage should not show me a status until it can confirm it. If the connection is bad and it can't tell then it should tell me that it can't tell. Not just guess and pretend it knows.

    That is entirely under Apple's control.

    Apple should shut down iMessage. That service is as buggier as ****.
