    I was thinking that with iMessage, my parents could cancel their text message plans and use iMessage to send us texts instead. That seems to be working 95% of the time for them but occasionally, their messages are sent to me as a regular green "Text Message."

    What might be causing this? Is it something on my end, their end?

    Attached is a screen cap of what it looked like on my end this morning...these are all received messages.

    This is normal. If it can't be sent as an iMessage it gets sent as a text message.
