    I posted this in another section but it might be more of an iOS 8 issue, apologies for the double post

    I have a friend who has an iPhone but does not always has data or wifi my messages are always sent as blue iMessages and not converted to SMS and she does not get them for a big delay


    Doing some googling it looked like a bug in 2012 and 2013 based on the posts I found is this still a bug? Or just a coincidence it's happening to me

    if it matters her replies have Text Message written above the time stamp no iMessage so that makes be believe she is not using data at the time

    If the person doesn't have data or something it'll show up as sent via SMS.

    I know it suppose to do that but I don't think its detecting if she has data off and no wifi should my messages be green?

    and why is her replies marked as a text message?

    Send another message to her, touch your sent message balloon, choose 'more' (if needed) and resend selecting 'Text Message'... do this twice, and the messages to her will be SMS not iMessage from then on.

    Does she have another device that might be receiving the messages? iPad, iPod, or Mac?

    Some strange reason, by default in iOS 8 "Send as SMS" is not turned on. Check your settings on your end and see if it's on dude.

    she does have an iPad, her iPad would be at home when we tested sending messages would the iPad being at home sleeping still inpact this?

    ----------

    Here is a screenshot you can see mine is a imessage and her reply is a text message

    Yes, the iPad sleeping would receive the iMessage preventing your device from trying to send it as an SMS.
