    I have a friend who is residing in the UK. I want to send him messages using iMessage without any charges but sometimes its important to get a hold of him but he has wifi unavailable so I send a regular text message (paying this time). I want to know how to setup iMessage so I can choose whether to send message using iMessage or regular international text. I need both options available so please guide me through.

    Only send it to his email address that's registered for iMessage if it fails it won't revert to a text message!

    You can also turn off the "Send as SMS" in Settings/Messages

    Both will work

    I would go with messaging the email. That way it will still revert to SMS when your iMessage doesn't go through with your other contacts.

    I agree, messaging his apple id email seems like the best option.
