Sometimes I can send an imessage on wifi and the bubble is blue.  Other times it wants to send it from a green bubble, however

I have sms turned off (I don't have a texting plan).  I can't figure out why it works sometimes and most of the time it does not

work.  I can be in the same location and send an imessage (blue bubble) and then ten minutes later, it wants to send it as an sms or green text.

It seems other people having trouble wth this after doing some research on the internet.


Does anyone know how to correct this so that when I am in wifi, I can send an imessage for free?


Thanks,  manpainter
