  1. Why Is Imessage Green And Not Blue
  • If iMessage is switched off either on your iPhone or on the recipient’s iPhone, the message will be sent via SMS and due to this, the message background turned into green color. It might be also the case that the iMessage server is down for temporary either on your iPhone or recipient’s iPhone.

You can use the Messages app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to send messages. Those messages are sent as iMessage or SMS/MMS. Learn more about the difference between the message types.



BUT now all my texts are green even to iPhones. I have gone into Settings Messages on the iPhone and iMessage is on but all outgoing texts are green. IMessage on desktop keeps saying 'Your iMessage account is not signed in.' But its only giving me the option to log out. I've logged out and logged back in again.

iMessages are texts, photos, or videos that you send to another iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi or cellular-data networks. These messages are always encrypted and appear in blue text bubbles. To turn iMessage on or off, go to Settings > Messages.


If you aren’t using iMessage, you can use SMS/MMS. These messages are texts and photos that you send to other cell phones or another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. SMS/MMS messages aren't encrypted and appear in green text bubbles on your device.

To use SMS/MMS on an iPhone, you need a text-messaging plan. Contact your wireless carrier for more information. You can also set up your other Apple devices to send and receive messages from any Apple device.
