    I have found a Bug in imessages

    Yes I have a JB device and use Bite SMS but none of this should make a difference:

    first off

    updating to 5.0.1 imessages is on by default

    the wizards at Apple have decided you need to send text messages to iPads and iTouches as well as normal phones

    This was my problem with iMessges on

    I would type a message and poof it would go as a text to my wife and poof it disappeared from my phone too.

    I had no record of the text, she would text back and 50% of the time poof it would disappear too.

    I went to settings-messages and turned imessages off ( since I have no other devices nor text to any of these anyway) and poof problem resovled.

    I noticed a big increase in battery life too, up to 20% better

    Honestly did Apple even test iOS 5 before making it the official iOS ?

    First time i've heard of this issue. There's alot of people in my family and friends that have used iOS 5 and not had any problems with iMessage.

    What's wrong with sending iMessages to iPads and iPods. It is a nice way of conversing with someone for free.

    Guess I do not know enough people with ipads
    I'm just a 47 year old Physician
    and honestly I really hate the iOS 5 update because it is so buggy

    Who's to say you wont have start happening, it happened to me after using Navigon the other day

    I have no idea why?

    But why is it important to mess with the texting ability of a phone? a Separate program would have been better for ipad and ipod

    I have two other Iphones in the family too, mine was the only one with this Bug

    Does not mean its not a bug

    Some are not having the battery issue as well

    does not mean the battery issue is not a problem

    Exactly my thinking. I'm not JB and have zero problems.

    I use iMessage and normal SMS every day for an average of probbaly 50-100 incoming/outgoing messages and have never had one issue or one message disappearing.

    I am jailbroken w/ biteSMS and a whole slew of other tweaks, and I iMessage with 3 friends at least 50 messages a day.

    Not once have I experienced a message missing or any battery issues.
