    Hi,
    when I text one contact that also has iOS 5, my iphone does not send the message via iMessage. The contact does have iMessage activated, has a valid apple ID and has access to the network.

    When I text other people with iOS 5 it works fine.

    What can be the reason ?

    Do you (try to) send iMessages to his mobile # or his iCloud address?
    Are the messages going through as SMS or are they failing?
    Are you both located in the same country?

    Now it works. I just had to disable/enable the iMessage on her iPhone. I think the initial "activation" was not done.
