    I have a buddy who switched back over to the dark side. He acquired some Samsung device recently. The other day I made a comment to him about not replying to a text message. He said he never got it. Then he made a comment about having received it on his iPad only, but not his Samsung. How can I fix his contact in my iPhone so that when I send him a text, it goes as a text instead of as an iMessage??

    He needs to fix it on his end. It's not just your messages that aren't going through. It's messages from all of his contacts with iPhones. Once he deactivates it, your phone will detect that his number is not associated with iMessages and it will start sending out texts.

    Send him this link with directions for fixing it:
