When I initially upgraded to iOS 5, iMessage wroked great. I was able to send iMessages to people with iOS 5 devices just like its supposed to work. However, some of my friends who previously had iPhones now have android phones and now whenever I try to text them, it only sends as an iMessage which they cannot receive on their phone. The only way to text them is to turn off iMessage which kind of defeats the point. Has anyone else run into this issue? Does anyone have any advice for me on how to force an SMS instead of an iMessage?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1
