How to find the current message sending status?

You can easily find them using the blue bubble and green bubble notification.

Blue bubble: If your message appears in blue bubble then it will be sent through iMessage.

Green bubble: If your message appears in green bubble then it is sent using the SMS or MMS plan of your SIM card.

Sometimes the iMessage may fail to work properly, so check out this following tips:

#1.Network Settings:

As it is a data plan service, at first check your network settings. Examine it whether the network settings are configured properly.

Another one problem in iMessage is that it will not work at the weak connection.

If you are using Wi-Fi then make sure that you are closer to the source or router.

#2. Turn OFF and Turn ON the service:

  1. As a trial and error method, just go to the SettingsMessages option and turn off the service of iMessage if it is already switched on.
  2. And again after a second Turn On the service.

At lot of time it works well. Weaker network signal is also one of the issue in case of iMessage as it requires high rate of the data.
