How Can I Stop Being Charged For Sending iMessages?


Some of my iMessages are being sent as SMS and I'm receiving charges. How do I prevent that from happening?

If an iMessage fails, it will try to send as an SMS (which may cost you money, depending on your provider and plan). To prevent iMessages from being sent as SMS, go to Settings > Messages and disable "Send As SMS".
