    iMessage is designed for Apple devices that support iOS 5. You can send an iMessage back and forth between Apple devices.

    You should still be able to send non iMessage people text messages. Try looking through this help link below, maybe it will be able to assist you. Is your iMessage on? Are you using your phone number or email for iMessage?

    I try to turn it off but it automatically pops up and won't let me go forward until I set it up. I am using my email from my Apple ID but my verifying is my phone number. Also thanks for the link

    You should be able to have iMessage on and text iPhone users through iMessage, as well as text other phone carriers with regular text messaging.

    Do you have any Cydia apps or tweaks that may affect your text messaging?

    Hmm just disabled springtomize 2 and now it works. Guess maybe I had a setting somewhere it didn't like, thanks for the help now I just got to figure what was causing it to do that.

    Not a problem. Settings can cause issues like this, and usually it's something installed from Cydia. :)
