I am having the exact same issue on Verizon. First message to another iPhone user sends as SMS. Every subsequent message after that uses iMessage. Did not used to function this way. I've disabled iMessage and re-activated it. Reset my phone. Restored my phone. Not sure what else to try.

Thanks for the link, but that's really of no help. iMessage works just fine, after the first message sends as a text.

My phone does the same thing. The first message I send will send text but after they reply (iMessage) never have any problems. If I get a message from them first it's an iMessage but when I start the conversation it only will send an SMS first. Really annoying, why not iMessage from message 1!!!!!!
