long time reader, first time poster... Is anyone else having constant issues with iMessage over the last week or so? It's gotten to the point where it's practically unusable. While I have posted this in the iOS 6 forum, since I believe it to be an iOS 6.1.3 issue, it is only happening to my iPhone 5, not my iPad (also running 6.1.3) or Messages.app on the MBP. iMessages successfully send for some people, not for others. for some, i can receive iMessages, but cannot send them back (forces as SMS, even though the send as SMS toggle is off). Some folks are only "green", meaning SMS only, even though I know they are on iMessage, even at the exact moment where they are iMessaging with others but it won't work with me. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. I've tried a number of fixes, which sometimes fix it for a few minutes to an hour, and sometimes not at all... those fixes include: power off then on, either immediately back on or giving it a few minutes to potentially "unregister" temporarily airplane mode on then off hard reset turn iMessage off then on on iPhone 5 turn iMessage off then on on all devices (iPad, MBP & iPhone) disable iMessage email addresses so it's phone number only So far, the best one seems to be the "off then on for all devices" solution, but even that isn't perfect. I've read some other posts, and it seems some folks are having similar issues, but not identical (ie: can send but not receive, or iMessage just doesn't work period). I was hoping we could get a thread going in one place to see if we can hash this issue out because Apple certainly isn't likely to acknowledge the issue. Location: NYC & Long Island (although it was happening in California last week too, so I don't think it's necessarily region specific) Carrier: AT&T (not unlocked/not jailbroken) Device: iPhone 5 Apple: It just (doesn't) work. Thanks to anyone who can provide some insight on this, or can just commiserate with me.
