My daughter has an iPhone  4 with iOS6 on, and I have an iPhone 5 with iOS6 on. We both have iMessage enabled and use it.


Now I can see when I have sent a message and its an iMessage as it is on blue. But how can tell if a message from my daughter is an iMessage as its in grey/white? I want to make sure that when she's sending me pics its using iMessage and not MMS as its so expensive.


I know if iMessage can't use data it defaults to SMS, but how can I tell received messages are definitely iMessages? Particularly as I say for pics and videos.
