I've been having some serious iMessage issues today having updated to iOS 6 last night. My fiance and I have always had iMessage issues but now its even worse. I've been messaging her all day to her PHONE NUMBER (still blue iMessages) and she didn't get a single one. My end never said there was a problem. She's also been messaging me to my PHONE NUMBER and nothing came through to me. Now she's getting all her messages on her iPad even though both are set to receive at both phone and email, and caller ID is set to phone number. It seems to me that no one should EVER have to "message my email address" and when someone normally messages my phone number (like the rest of the world on other phones do) it should show up on my wifi-only iPad AND my iPhone. Is it that hard Apple? You seem to not be able to figure out the most simple things...

Had same issue on iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1 only a couple times. Updated to iOS 6 yesterday and now can't send any messages at all via iMessage. Messages say "Not delivered" in iOS 6; tried to resend message but still failed. Somehow issue doesn't seem to happen to new iPad on iOS 6.
What's going on Apple?

I'm having the same problem. I've missed 3 very important Messages (iMessage, not SMS) on my iPhone, yet when I arrived home, they were waiting for me on my iPad. This is incredibly problematic and could result in business loss.

I'm having the same problem.
Sometimes the message arrive when I swipe to wake the phone on; sometimes they don't.
Never do they make an alert noise when they arrive.
This is really irritating.

I had the same problem. My friend didn't receive any messages from me yesterday (we both have 4S and iOS6). She send me a message today and I received it, but it was in a new conversation (sent from her email, not phone number, though she just continued our previous phone-2-phone conversation).
Now I have 2 chats with her and have no idea, why and how this happened.

I've inspected a few iPhones with the same problem and found, how it can be fixed. It seems, that after updating to iOS6 the iMessage settings were randomly reseted. In some cases the phone number wasn't ticked in "send & receive" option, then you should turn off the iMessage service and turn it on again. If it doesn't help, and the phone option stays unticked, than you should try to add and remove your email from this option.
I hope this will help.

I have been very frustrated all day! I have an iPhone 4 and upgraded to iOS6 like a fool! I cannot send any SMS messages to non iPhone users. It just says Not Delivered. I have tried it 10 times. I switched WiFi on and off, network data on and off and even restarted my phone AND powercycled the phone... the messages just will not go through!
I had no problems before the update to iOS6. If anyone figures something out please post it here!

I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I've noticed that if I go to contacts on my phone (not imessage) select a contact scroll down and select 'send message' I can then make a further selction, i.e iphone number, email etc.
When doing this messages are delivered.
When I use the imessage app, and + a contact for the message I want to compose, I get no option to select iphone, email etc. It just puts the contact name in the address field (and when this is normally an imessage (blue) it's actually green (not recognised as imessage registered). When I send a message it says delivered but the recipient never gets it.
I think what's actually happening here (I'm most likely wrong) when you use the imessage app is that it's not selecting the correct addresses, it might be (no way of proving this) be trying to send the message to a facebook email address?
I'm hoping this a a quick fix bug in iMessenger.

Found iMessage set to OFF by default?!? It was ON before upgrading to iOS 6. Anyway, turned it back on and it's working again. Why is iMessage set to OFF be default anyway???
Thanks for the help everybody.
