I sent today an iMessage through my iPhone, and on the iPhone there is still no "delivered" status, but when I checked on my iPad which is on the same AppleID there is status "delivered" indicated beneath the same iMessage... What is actually the right status??? How is this different status in the same iMessage possible???? Thnx Alen

I find that if you send an iMessage from iPhone/MacbookPro/iPad, it won't be status 'delivered ' on the sent device until the receiver got the message,but the status on the other devices with the same AppleID will show the status 'delivered' as soon as you sent the iMessage.

When the iMessage expires, I.e. if the recipient does not receive it after some days? –  Alen May 11 '13 at 5:38
