Text Messages send as multimedia messages, and don't go through

I have regularly text messaged for a while, but recently when I text, either by creating a new message or by replying to a text, it will seem to be exactly the same, but then when I check my outbox, they have actually sent in Multimedia Message format. This is problematic because my friends do not receive the messages, and also because it is expensive because I do not have mms on my plan. How can I fix this?

Cannot send message, iMessage needs to be enabled to send message? Iphone 4S

Every Apple device can send messages to another apple device. This messages are called iMessages.

When you try to send a message to your son's iPhone your iPhone will try to send it via internet using iMessages.

In order to "tell your iPhone" to use regular text messages make sure that your son's cellular number is correctly stored in your contacts. That way if your iMessage fails, your iPhone will send it via regular text message.

You will see the difference between both because the "send" button and contact name will turn green when using regular text messages and blue when you're using iMessages.

Text Messaging randomly turns into Multimedia Messaging

I had the exact same problem and it did help when I deleted all my received texts. I started having the problem when I had more than 400 text messages stored in my phone.

Pls help with template problem

when you go "new message" in the messages menu it should give you an option of text message as well as multimedia message and other things. If the problem is when replying to messages it should automatically send in text format and if it doesn't then it should once you have sent some "text" messages from the "new message" option. Hope this helps :-)

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
