When I send a text to another Iphone user, it's green then when they text me back, it's blue after that. Why?

How can I change that? The Iphone I send to has the newest software and all. Doesn't make sense.

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    When you send the message to another iPhone, it sends it as a text message because it doesn't know what type of phone it is. When it recieves a message from that phone, the info in the message tells the phone that it is talking to another iPhone. Also, sometimes when there is no internet, the iPhone may send messages as a text. This is because the blue messages are send over the internet as an iMessage. Now if you are texting to another iPhone and its green, try going to SETTINGS > Messages > iMessage > make sure it is turned on. Just my two cents
