iMessage® is a great feature for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch users, allowing them to send free SMS with other owners of these devices. All you need to do is connect the device to the Internet, tap on the iMessage® slider in the message settings, write your message and send.

However, in iOS 7, Apple® reports a bug is causing messaging issues. If you’ve been having trouble with iMessage®, the instructions below describe how to fix this issue and make the iMessage® service work correctly.

Fixing iMessage® issue on iOS 7:

  1. Log in and go to "Settings".
  2. Scroll down to "Messages" (green speech bubble icon) and in the column that starts with iCloud®, tap on it.
  3. Turn off the iMessage® service by tapping and the slider for "iMessage" will be turned off.
  4. Then go back to “Settings”, scroll to "General" and tap that.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the “General” settings until you see the option "Reset". Tap that.
  6. Tap the option "Reset Network Settings". A message appears in red at the bottom of the screen saying "Reset Network Settings".
    WARNING: Resetting network settings will make your device forget Wi-Fi passwords, so you'll need to add these back in.
    Tap it again.
  7. Go back to "Settings" and choose "Messages" again. Slide the top switch again so that '"iMessage" is switched on again.

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can easily identify iMessages® in your conversation since the outgoing bubbles will be blue instead of the classic green for SMS.
