    I want to message my friend from Sweden, but when I have her number in my phone as a contact, (with the correct + country code) and create a message the send button is green and won't recognize her as an iOS device . I don't want to send a message because of the outrageous fee ill get. Anybody have any ideas? :(

    If she has an appleID linked to her imessage try sending it to her email address.

    For international numbers, make sure you have the correct format, and the other side has turned on imessages.

    e.g. +1 (555) 555-5555
