    @Europa finally told Apple to get on the stick.

    Well done Mindi. :D

    I suppose that lawsuit has nothing to do with it. :D

    How convenient. Days after a lawsuit, they issue a statement to re/code about a fix coming.

    Let's not forget that iMessage isn't exactly Apple's finest moment. People who use it regularly complain about delayed messages and so on.

    Someone should have sued them sooner.
    I tend to disagree. Aside from the difficulty in deactivating after switching to Android (which can typically be prevented if you toggle it off before switching), I think it's a good service. It isn't perfect and it has occasional glitches, but in general, I think people really like it. It's free, you can see delivered/read receipts, you can see when someone is typing, you can use it when you have WiFi but no cell signal, and you can even text iPads and iPods. iMessages is one of the big reasons that I stick with iOS.

    I can send good quality videos via iMessage. Case closed.

    iMessage and FaceTime are the two biggest reasons I have stuck with Apple.

    I totally disagree.

    I'm OK with iMessage because (when it's working), you can use the same UI to interact with Apple and non-Apple friends. On the other hand, any of the good IM solutions will provide the same capabilities that iMessage provides, but for ALL my friends, Mac/PC, iOS/Android/Windows.

    Face time I just refuse. Totally closed, only iOS and Mac/OS. That leaves out a boatload of my friends.

    These two apps are examples of why I'd drop Apple, not stick to it.

    It's Ok. I totally disagree with you, too.

    I've tried so many times to 'get into' iMessage, and I'm yet to fully embrace it. I hope Apple fix all the issues with iMessage.
