    I was just wondering why some of my text messages are green and others are blue. My brother has an iPhone4 as well but he has never seen this. Anyone know why this is happening?

    Yes. When you send a text to another iPhone its sending an iMessage so basically its a free text message system for iPhones kinda like what BBM is to Blackberry

    It's iMessage. It came preinstalled with iOS 5. It will send any SMS free of charge to other iOS 5 users (note it uses data). The green bubbles are regular SMS's to non iOS 5/non iPhone users.

    They must have iOS 5 and have it turned on as well.

    You also have to have a data package or connection to a wifi network for iChat to work.

    Also iMessage will try to send the message but if it fails for whatever reason, it will send as text and will note that instead of delivered. My iMessage is messed up
