Question: Will iMessage Text Forwarding Produce A Charge?

Hello, I have a couple iMessage FAQ questions that would like to get out of the way before setting things up thanks in advance for your answer:


1) Will turning on the Text Forwarding on my iPhone in Message so that my text get forward to my Mac generate any money cost?


2) Will turning on the Text Forwarding on my iPhone in Message so that my text get forward to my Mac leave a copy of the text in the iPhone in such way that I will be able to see the text on both devices?

Answer:

Does the iMessage Text Forwarding option sends out an actual cell phone text to the Apple system when it makes it's way to my Mac? or is it like iMessage messages that it's internet based.


The carrier SMS message is relayed to your Mac via cellular or wifi using Apple's Messages server/settings.


It's not an additional SMS message.

Thank you for your reply. This questions are literally for Text messages, not "imessage messages" per-say, as in cell phone based text messages from any type of cell phone including non iphone senders.


Elaborating on the first question more, Does the iMessage Text Forwarding option sends out an actual cell phone text to the Apple system when it makes it's way to my Mac? or is it like iMessage messages that it's internet based.
