iMessage somtimes works, sometimes not. Just recently I was sitting with a friend, we both having iPhone 4 and latest iOS. For both iMessage has worked before. But all of a sudden iPhone lets me send iMessage but the message is not delivered. Sometimes messages default to SMS, sometimes iMessage, sometimes with the "delivered" status, sometimes this status is not displayed. In one particular case we were really sitting at the same table and tried to send iMessage (it was clearly not SMS) but the other party did not receive anything (and no "delivered"). So the iMessage got lost somewhere.


So the basic question remains: how reliable is iMessage? How fast will an iMessage be delivered, assuming the receiving iPhone is online.
