    What does the blue text message speech bubble mean?

    Hello, out of the blue (I'm sorry) the speech bubbles on my messages have turned from green/grey to blue. Is anybody aware of what this means, if anything or does my iPhone just fancy a change?

    We are guessing that it's the difference between iOS 4 and 5. iOS 4 message replies are green and 5 show as blue !

    I believe the blue bubble is for when you use iMessage.

    The difference is whether or not they have iMessage.

    Sent from my iPhone using iPF.net

    Technically the difference is what mode of sending was used.

    Green = Sent thru SMS.
    Blue = Sent thru iMessage (IE the internet, which doesn't count against your SMS usage).

    Which means it is possible for both people to have iMessage but because there was no internet connection to use, it will fall back to SMS.

    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    So, if I send an IMessage, and it says delivered and is in blue, does that mean that other person's Phone is turned on? If the text turns green, does that mean that the phone is turned off?

    No. Blue simply means they have iMessage enabled as well. Green means they do not have iMessage.

    So why do the im's sometimes turn green when I know my friend has iMessage?

    It turns green when iMessage isn't available. Or your friend turns iMessage off.

    When the other person is typing, does it show the the ellipsis (...) symbol?
