How many times have you been in the middle of an extremely important text or getting ready to send the ending of your crazy night to your friend, only to find out that it never went through. Well you are not alone. There have been many iMessage users who have been having issues with texts not sending. But what exactly is causing the problem with the iMessage program? What is the solution to the problem should it ever be fixed?

This problem has been completely consistent with one key factor; it is only happening with iPhone owners. That being said, the issue has finally been diagnosed. It appears that the reason behind the texting issue, is the when an iPhone user switches to a non Apple phone without switching off the iMessage, Apple is still under the impression that the user is still using an iPhone. This leads to the text sending to the number that is still associated with the iMessage service that was not turned off. The problem is something that Apple has been dealing with on multiple accounts, but have come up with a few solutions for it.

The main solution Apple has been suggesting, along with a few other carrier providers, is to un-register the phone via the users Apple profile page. There have been a few other solutions brought up, but this appears to be the main solution to go to. It was stated that Apple has been notified by a few carriers already about the issue but has stated that they show no interest in funding any type of research that could get rid of the problem altogether. While it may not be the biggest deal, it is still an inconvenience that Apple should put a bit more interest in, in my opinion.
