I had a similar issue, though I was no longer able to send to any other device (iMessage or non-Apple). Similar to a couple of others here, it ended up being that Text Message Forwarding was disabled. I don't recall turning it off so either I forgot I did or it was reset during an update. Select Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding. Select your mac ...

This is from the iPhone user guide: Share photos, videos, your location, and more With iMessage or MMS, you can send and receive photos and videos, and send locations, contact info, and voice memos. The size limit of attachments is determined by your service provider— iPhone may compress photo and video attachments when necessary. You didn't ...

Yes, just drag the divider to the left. It will shrink that area so that all you see is the names, not any of the text.

Mac is a closed system, and Apple takes many safety precautions to ensure that it stays that way, and that nothing is tampered with. Though there are indeed many ways, they all come with a consequence. My advice would be to schedule your Mac for an appointment at the nearest Apple Store and have them take a closer look at it. To schedule an appointment, you ...

If you want the easiest, most foolproof way to do this with the most flexible format WITH images/videos/gifs/emoji/allthethings, follow along.

The device is in a state that cannot receive messages, so probably off. The messages are still going to the iMessage account/phone number because they are still active, despite the device being inactive.

A little trick: change your iCloud password. Then all of apple services can NOT work properly. See the relevant-support here: How to completely disassociate iMessage from my device?

In this order, try this: Sign out of iMessage on all devices (if you want to be lazy, just the computer) Remove iCloud from the computer (in the Accounts tab -- don't worry, we'll be putting it right back on) Restart the machine Repeat in reverse (add your iCloud account back, and then sign into iMessage). That's basically what AppleCare would have you ...

The only way to be sure the message is being sent to his Android is to use a 3rd-party text service like Viber. These services are designed to be device agnostic and are good solutions for people looking for cross-device (android to iphone, for example) communication. They can also tell you when messages are delivered and if they are read by the recipient. ...

He isn't actually hacking into your iMessage at all. Group messages can be a little strange in the way they work. When you remove someone from a group thread there is no way for them to know unless you specifically notify them. It does not show them that they were removed nor does it delete the thread. As such, the other party in your case is likely carrying ...

No. Your messages are tied to the device specifically, not necessarily the account. If you wanted to delete the messages, you could delete whole conversations by swiping left in the messages list or individually deleting messages by double tapping on the message.

Had a similar "stuck in message" problem. Powering off/powering on fixed the issue....

No, iMessage and iCloud are (for all intents and purposes) unrelated services. Photos and videos sent or received through iMessage are only stored on Apple's servers long enough to deliver them to all devices you have registered, or seven days, whichever occurs first.

Check that the address or number you are sending to is listed on your friend's iPhone as a receiving address. Your friend can do this in the Settings app > Messages > Send & Receive > "you can be reached at"

I found that a combination of the previous answers works best as a script in Script Editor: tell application "Messages" to "clear unread messages" delay 1 tell application "Messages" to quit delay 1 tell application "Dock" to quit delay 1 tell application "Messages" to launch

iMessage will not return a "delivered" message if the message was not delivered to the user. Here are some situations of iMessage returning different statuses: Not delivered (usually accompanied with a red exclamation): the message could not be sent from your phone due to your network connection (no message): the message was successfully sent from your ...

Yes, you'd need to get her a different Apple ID for iMessages to be sent separately. You can do this by one of two ways: Method 1: Create an Apple ID using Gmail, Outlook, etc: If you want to create an Apple ID, but don't want to have to restore the phone to do it, visit the Apple ID management page. Note: your daughter will need an existing email address ...

Tell your friend to go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive. By turning on the setting to receive from all of the email addresses, it shouldn't matter which address you send to. Your friend can also choose the phone to be their "Caller-ID" so they are sending as a mobile and not an email/AppleID. You can also be sure to delete any conversations that ...
