Usually iMessage is tied to the email associated with iCloud. If the person is using iMessage on their new number they would have logged in with their email address and hence receive the message.

It simply means they decided against sending a message after starting to type one. You can find a detailed breakdown of when that indicator appears in the April 2015 Slate video, "When Can Someone See You Typing? Explained." On iOS, the indicator appears as soon as the user on the sending end starts typing. It only goes away when either that user sends a ...

Check if you have the devices under settings/messages/text messages forwarding, and enable all the devices you want to recieve/send messages from. Even if you already enabled it previously, you might of renamed the device, just check if the device with exact name is enabled.

All syncing of messages is done with your iCloud account. First check the iCloud settings on the working devices and then compare them to the settings on the non-working device. If they are the same you could try removing and re-adding the account. Note that Messages on iPad is only going to show you conversations with other IOS devices. So if you are ...

I am having the same problem too. I could solve it if I turned off my Outlook sync of contacts and just used a local copy. Then once I tuned the Outlook sync back on, Siri again said there were no numbers for that person. I ended up creating a new contact with the first name and last name the same, with the same phone number as the original contact and that ...

No: blocking will actually generally result in your phone sending as an iMessage that doesn't get delivered. Any number of things could still be happening to send as text. You or the other person may have sending/receiving as SMS enabled or iMessage disabled. You or the other person may not have a proper internet connection for a number of reasons. iMessage ...

I think it is more likely about software issue. Did you upgrade your iPhone 5s to latest version? Also you can backup your files on iCloud or iTunes, then remove all data and restore. Maybe the situation will be disappeared.

Text messages that are blocked are not saved. So you cannot go in to see old text messages.

If you have been blocked the phone will ring once then go straight to voicemail or it will go straight to voicemail without ringing. A text message will show as delivered but the person will never see it. If it has a single green tick next to it it means you have been blocked.

You are using same iTunes account on both devices. If that's the case remove the iTunes account from iPad and see what happens. If removing iTunes account fixes the issue then this is caused by iMessage.

I had the same problem where Siri would be able to pull up my wife's contact and even call her but not text her. Finally fixed that by going into Settings > iCloud and turning on Contacts.

I ran into this question earlier today. Figured out that I had to just drag the scroll bar between the conversation pane on the right and the pane on the left that shows the contacts over to the right and then the names showed up. That menu does not appear on my MacBook Air running 10.11.2 or my iMac running 10.11.1. Seems easier once you know you can just ...

I found 2 ways of doing that. Depending on your needs and preferences, you choose what you want. 1. The flexible way Open the Terminal.app And enter the following command: sqlite3 ~/Library/Messages/chat.db Now you are in the database of the Messages app of your mac. Enter the following commands (but don't include the sqlite> as this one was added ...

You may try going to .../Library/Messages/Archive and look for the specific date/phone number. It should allow you to pull up the conversation. Good luck!

If the iPhone was backed up to a computer through iTunes, you can explore the contents of the backup with a tool like this: http://supercrazyawesome.com if there's no backup then it becomes a lot more difficult as they're removed from the message database.

It may just take some time, but if not, Apple recommends that you switch off imessage, restart your iphone and then turn imessage back on. When you switch it back on your phone number should be ticked. the same goes for Facetime if you have a problem. https://support.apple.com/en-nz/HT201422

All messages are saved in ~/Library/Messages so you can create a backup by simply using a cronjob to cp them over to your archive folder.
