    I apologise if this has already been answered somewhere

    With Siri you can say "text" someone and it texts them, but will this also work with iMessage?

    Yes, since iMessage is integrated in your text app. Take a look at this thread.

    Imessages are not a separate thing! I think people miss understand the concept. The magical ios5 knows that the device your sending to can accept an message and sends that automatically. However if said device fails to receive item it will send as a txt message after five minutes!

    So when u tell Siri to txt u don't need to worry. If imessage is available it'll be sent as such!

    i think saying "text" would mean the same thing as the default message. So if they are iMessage capable, then it would send as an iMessage or else it would be sms

    Pretty sure you can also just say message. That gets rid of the pre-conceived notion that it only works over texting

    You know this is all a mute point now that the big carriers counteracted the imessage from apple by making their text plans either none or unlimimted for $20.. no in between plans like they use too. It really sucks, so now every text plan will be basically unlimited for the heft price...

    Yeah I noticed with my Verizon account it was either unlimited texting or none. Frustrating...but at least iMessage / Phone manufacturers are changing things. The ability to send an iMessage from any iOS device is cool...too bad it didn't work on OS X. I only have and need one iOS device...my iPhone.

    Send text to someone for a later date

    Hey Guys,
    I am new on this forum. I was just curious about the ability to send someone a text message for a later date. EX: Let's say it is 8am on a friday and its my wife's birthday on sunday. Can I ask Siri to send a text to my wife saying "Happy Birthday" at 12am on Sunday but do it on Friday?

    That would be a amazing to be able to do that. I am sure it will keep alot of guys out of the dog house....lol :D
