    I am currently going over my contract due to the fact that iMessage keep getting sent as Text Messages.

    This mainly MMS (Images) sent over iMessage which fail to send and eventually send over Text Message.

    Is there any way of preventing failed iMessages from sending as Text Messages.

    Thanks,

    Ross

    Have your carrier put a block on text messages.
    I'm with AT&T... I've had them blocked for as long as I can remember. iMessage is all I need.
    Yesterday I got a text, not an iMessage :eek:
    Somehow when I switched to my new phone, the block disappeared ..
    I called AT&T and had it put right back on.
    I'm sure any carrier will block it for you

    Settings->Messages->Send as SMS - Turn that Off.

    Edit: Or, you could try cutting off MMS Messaging in the same pane. You can see if that cuts off MMS for SMS-only or both SMS and iMessage.
