Hello Ryan6000!

Thanks for using the Apple Support Communties! I see from your post that you are wondering why some of your text messages are blue and why they are suddenly green. There could be a number of reasons for this but I'm sure I can help you find a solution.

Whether or not a message will be green or blue (iMessage) when sending a text message on your iPhone is solely dependent upon if you are sending a message to someone that is using an iOS device (another iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) or a Mac; or if you are sending a message to a non-Apple device.

We have a great article that explains the difference between the two called: About iMessage and SMS/MMS

I hope this information helps!

Kindest Regards
