Whats the difference between iMessage and texting?

 Whats the difference between iMessage and texting?
topic by SupaMann - 10-19-2011, 10:47 AM - Boxden > iPhone Owners Lounge


They both look the same to me except a different color bubble.

Whats the advantage?

I used to have blackberry and was able to use a PIN to msg someone without needing their phone number... so.. do iPhone users have pins? > Whats the difference between iMessage and texting? - Photo posted in iPhone Owners Lounge | Sign in and leave a comment below!

IM's started with computers and were mainly used as computer based messaging

Texting was phone based messaging

now that most phones are like mini-computers they are essentially the same thing...

you can send a text through a computer, but there's really no need because you can just instant message them....feel me

Naw iPhone's don't have pins but you can be messaged by using your email address instead of giving out your number. Just make sure you have an email address set as your caller ID under your iMessage settings. It's a lot simpler and faster than BBM in my opinion.

you can get sent receipts, see if the other has read your text, it uses data rather than messages, and you can see when people are typing, not to mention it seems faster to me

plus you can use a iPad or iPod touch to message as well, and I heard soon to be added to Mac

it does seem faster as well too

And also your messages get proxied thru apple, so they most likely are recording what you say...

its essentially like bbm is except the added feature of being able to do it thru email...advantages are seeing when its delivered, read,and when they are responding...no more wondering did my text go thru or not or is someone ignoring me. Disadvantage is just that, if you are ignoring someone they can see that you have read their text. But you can also turn that option off. And it is def faster, wish i new more ppl that actually had an iphone so i could use this more than texting.
