    For some reason iMessage between 2 people in our family isn't working, yet between others it is, from each of the affected iPhones as well. So it's only between 2 people it's not working between, so strange. Yet another iPhone can send iMessage to each fine?

    We've restarted both, switched off iMessage on each, put back on, force restarted, still won't work. Why/how can they both work for everyone else, just not between 2 specific people, so confused.

    Also normal sms text messages are a bit delayed sometimes as well. We are both on same network in UK, EE, good signal, phone calls are fine.

    Anyone help please

    OP: When you say 'not working' - what actually happens? Get error message saying not delivered? Or do they send and just vanish?

    Normally when you type the send is in blue. It's always in green now for this person, then seems as a sms (green) message, the same the other way. No error, just doesn't even start as an iMessage.

    Worked prefect until few days ago, send 10s of thousands of iMessage between each other.

    You say two people in your family... Different or same Apple ID?

    Two people in same family yes, separate Apple ID, but use family sharing for apps etc.

    Well, done absolutely nothing more than above on last post, and now it's suddenly working.

    What is going on? So strange, only between 2 specific iPhones, to and from those iPhones to other iPhones and worked fine?

    Must have been something on Apple side, however it worked on some, which is the strange thing
