iMessage Fails to Send

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

Since iMessage was brought out last year (2011) I have been gladly using it as it means that I no longer need to rely on Apps like Whatsapp or Liveprofile to share photos and videos over WiFi.

But there is one major problem – sometimes it will go to send with the loading/sending bar going right up to just before the end (say 90%) and then it will just stay there for a few minutes, then just fail!

I know it is supposed to send via SMS if it doesn’t work and the contacts I’m sending it to do have SMS’able mobile numbers but it doesn’t tell me it is doing this. So I keep trying to send it and although it says ‘failed’ sometimes the recipients DO get the message…

This is just really annoying and I would like to know a fix!

Top Legit Reasons To Jailbreak Your iPhone

The iPhone is a great phone with many features but some simple features that you can find on many other cheaper phones have, for some reason, been left out. In this article I will point out these ‘missing’ features that can help you use your phone quicker and smoother on a regular basis. This article is not about downloading ‘illegal’ apps for free that you would normally have to pay for through the App Store.

As iOS 5 has only just been released, the first list below shows software that you can download through Cydia to bring your phone up-to-spec with iOS 5.

Pre iOS 5

1. Volume button for camera

2. WiFi Sync

3. Lock Info – Like notifications on iOS5

4. Call Bar – Incoming notifications banner.

This list is mainly for users on iOS 5 who already have the features above and want to further improve their iPhone’s uses.

iOS 5

1. Time stamp – Date & Time with each individual text message instead of ‘once every so often’.

2. Winterboard – Custom themes

3. Copic – puts photos next to contacts in call log, address book and messages.

This article is a work in progress and will be updated in the future.

If you know of any extras to add to either list please let us know!
