Hi I have an iPhone 5 7:0.4 and everytime I try to send an iMessage on my home wifi it takes 10-15 minutes to send or it sends as a text message. Why does this happen? It doesn't happen to my other family members in my house who have a 5
Anything in general pics textsWhat are you sending with imessage that takes a while to send?
Is it just text or pictures or video?
Weird.Anything in general pics texts
This happend right as my data plan expired that had unlimited texting with it. Like before when I had the plan, and was on wifi they would send fine now since I switched plans to soemthing that doesn't have data and unlimited texting they won't seem to send on my home wifi
at my schools wifi I think it sends right away but there speed is like 20-25 downIt shouldn't have anything to do with low funds in the account. As long as its on wifi it should send either way.
Does it do the same in other wifi routers or just the one at your house?
How do I check on that? Because I just tested it with my iPhone 4 which doesn't have a data plan and is on tmobile and the messages sent quickly same with my siblings who have an iPhone 5 from Verizon messages on wifi send right away idk why my iphone doesn't send messages on wifiNot sure what port numbers imessages use to send so you can go into configuration to make sure they're open.
At least you know its not the phone but that particular wifi.
That's what I was thinking too but doesn't explain how other iphone's connected on that same router send imessages fast and with no probs and only his iphone doesn't send or gets stuck.Is the phone only slow at sending iMessages while on your own personal wifi or is the internet slow as well? If it is just iMessage and you have already tried resetting network settings then I would say that it is something with the router. You could always go buy a new router and keep the receipt if it does not work.
Can you teach me how to check if the ports are blockedYour Wifi network must be having problems connecting to Apple's servers.
If you have a data plan, the phone will fall back to cellular to send iMessages if local Wifi is not working. Since your data plan expired there's nothing to fall back to, so now it just fails outright.
Check your router and network configuration; make sure there aren't blocked ports or other issues.
