I've actually noticed the opposite until recently - I used to lose all 'backlog' if my phone couldn't receive the message at the appropriate moment (I even tried to work round it - How to tell Messages "I'm not at home"?) However, your issue is slightly different, you are intentionally 'removing' your phone from any possible reception for ...

If you have enhanced dictation enabled you can run commands such as saying "Press Return Key" after dictating your message and the return key will be pressed and thus your message will be sent.

I use Adium; there is an extension that lets you connect to Lync servers. Adium SIPE/Lync Xtra Once you have the Xtra installed, you can add your Lync account as an "Office Communicator" account.

It can happen if your phone is outside good reception area for iMessage - carrier signal dropped to GPRS/Edge etc. The Mac picks it up, the system considers it delivered. There is no further attempt to send it to your phone. It used to happen to me a lot when I was working in a low-reception area. It won't re-synchronise. See How to tell Messages ...

There currently is no definite way to tell. However, if a person does not respond after a long period of time, they most likely have blocked you.

An iTunes backup includes text messages. See this Apple page for what is included. Notice that to restore everything, including passwords, you need to encrypt the iTunes backup with a password.

My guess is that you both need to be on wifi, or you need to restart BOTH of your devices.

Simple first-try fix for a 'red name' above the iMessage pane is click it & reselect the correct contact type/number/email - even if it's the same as the current top line, select it again from lower down the list. Even if the number cannot accept 'blue' iMessages, it will make the system try again. Also - Make sure you have turned on Text Message ...

Under your Message settings in iOS, there is an option to select which address or phone number new conversations will originate from. Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > Start new conversations from:

No, sorry. The reason being is that it saying delivered would have to guarantee that it was delivered/read by each phone and one message would not be able to do that. Maybe Apple will add a more robust system in the future though.

You are correct, there are no delivery or read receipts for group messages (regardless of the size). Even when all participants are using iMessage, it will not display either receipt. I suppose this is for simplicity so there isn't a receipt for every individual in the group.

I guess the message is for security purposes(citation?) and for some reason it turned my iMessage off. Turning it back on fixed all my issues.

Log out. Log in. Check for each existing conversation that the small tab at the top of the main window is not red. If it is, click it & re select their correct number/address.

The devices are connected with iCloud, so if you receive a message on iPhone, the same message appears on iPad. They are synchronised... but they are synchronised by a COPY. If you remove a message from one device, it still exists on other devices. And deletions are permanent for a device (iPad, iPod, iPhone). So, he forgot to erase the copy. But is not the ...

No, this is not possible. Blocking a user will still deliver the message to your account, it just won't be shown. You can't prevent a message from being sent to you, except by creating a new account.

iMessage can be configured to send/receive from your phone number as well as any email addresses that you have verified through your account. If your iPhone is configured to start new conversations from your phone number, but continues sending from your email address to a particular contact, you would need to delete the existing conversation with that ...

My logic board was recently replaced in this Macbook and the vendor never serialized the newly installed logic board. I discovered this by going to "About This Mac" and seeing the serial number being reported as "Unknown". The vendor corrected this actually applying a serial number to the logic board, which required specialized software that they had to ...

Yes, I'm having the same problem. IOS 8.1.3 on an iPhone 5. But killing/restarting the message app will bring the trashcan back for "a while", then it disappears again.

You can't add another phone number to the same Apple ID, but you can add another e-mail address instead. Go to Settings -> Messages -> Send & Receive and 'Add Another E-mail...' there.

Same thing was happening to me. I opened "Contacts" on my Mac. It said it could not access my Exchange contacts and I needed to input the password for my Exchange account. Once I did that all my contact names showed up in iMessage. Apparently iMessage pulls contacts from the Mac "Contacts" and that needs access to the Exchange contacts.

Launch Messages. Go to Messages > Preferences. Click on Accounts. Then, click on your Apple ID and deselect "Enable this account". It will keep all messages from going from and to your Mac.

This worked for me: I made a script in Script Editor that ran the following: tell application "Messages" to quit delay 1 tell application "Dock" to quit delay 1 tell application "Messages" to launch Save the script as an application, and launch it every time iMessage messes up.

When you add the Emoji-keyboard on iOS (Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard > Emoji), it automatically collects the recently used emoticons on the first tab at the bottom (the clock icon). The same goes for Messages.app on OS X; when you open the Emoji-selection from the smiley-face in the input box, it shows the ...
