So basically here is my setup:


-iMessage is on

-Send as SMS if iMessage fails is OFF

-MMS is on


If for example I pick a photo from the camera roll and want to share it by messages and want to send it to someone that DOES NOT have an iPhone then the message automatically fails because it tries to send it as an iMessage. This is regardless of whether or not the person is on an iOS device or not. After it fails, I can go into messages and see that it failed and resend it and it works. Does this happen to anyone else?


Thank you.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2, already tried restoring as new

    sounds like an issue with the way the messages are running.

    Follow these steps:


    -Turn off iMessage.


    -End iMessage in the background processes. (Double tap home button then press and hold icon then tap minus sign. double tap to return to home screen)


    -Power cycle phone.


    -Turn iMessage on.


    -Resend message.

    Unfortunately this did not work. I don't know what it is but it seems like it's ignoring my preference about sending group messages as well. It's off yet everyone I send it to sees who else I'm sending it to. Unless I'm understanding group messaging wrong.

    I have the exact same issue: there's nothing to do to fix it, must be a bug in iOS 6.1.3
