Is iMessage Broken on iOS8?

I waited to upgrade to iOS8 on purpose. I wanted to give it a few weeks for the kinks to be ironed out. It seems I didn’t wait enough.

I upgraded at the end of last week and then over the weekend tried to send a few messages. It at least I thought I’d sent them.

I wrote them, hit send, but nothing. They clearly didn’t arrive, but looking back at my messages they weren’t there either. They had just disappeared.

Fortunately it was nothing too important, just “I’m running late” kind of thing.

However this morning I discovered that messages haven’t been received by me either.

Previously with iMesage you could ‘force’ to send your message as a regular text message if you wanted to – but that option has gone, certainly if the message has just disappeared.

So, are there any alternatives to iMesage? Or perhaps more importantly, is there a way for me to just send a ‘normal’ text message?

Phones for sale

I’m selling a couple of iPhones – do you want one?

2 x iPhone 4S 16GB in white – £125 each plus postage and packing in the UK.

They’re both phones I bought for a former business of mine that unfortunately has closed, so we don’t need the phones. They’re in excellent condition as they were hardly used – they were never used as phones, we actually bought them for the camera.

I could put them on eBay – and I’ve seen them on sale there for £175, but I’m not sure I want to deal with the risk of selling to a stranger. Or I could sell them through MusicMagpie – and I’d get £112.50 for them, but I think they’re worth a bit more.

So if you fancy a deal – let me know – patrick.smith@joshuapr.com.

*This is open to UK residents only as I’m not posting abroad (sorry). It’ll be first come first served and I’ll ask for a deposit of £50 before I post, with the balance paid upon receipt. Obviously if we can meet up and do it all in one go even better.

I’ll add some photos of the phones shortly.
