I recently bought an iPhone and upgraded to iOS5, I use iMessage with some of my friends, but since I don't have a 3G plan, I only use it with wifi, however, I've noticed that when my friends text me and I don't have any wifi I don't receive the the message until I get home and connect to the internet, I was wondering if there's any way that I'll get the text as an SMS immediately instead of as an iMessage a couple of hours later...thanks for your help!

When you are away from WiFi, go to Settings> Messages> iMessage (OFF)

This way when people send you a Text Message, it will not have the option to go through as an iMessage, but rather a standard Text.

Perfect! I'll do that :)
