    I thought I read a thread on this but am unable to locate it. We are getting a delay on sending text messages from the 4S.

    Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix?

    iMessage is on by default. How do I turn it off. Is that the reason texts are slow?

    It will try and send via imessage first, if that fails (because the phone you are sending to hasn't got a data connection for example) it will then resend the message as a standard SMS.

    you can turn off imessage in settings -> Messages so that it defualts to using SMS if you prefer.

    Yea I think after 5minutes of trying to send it as an iMessage if it doesn't go through it will send as a SMS.
