Why can't I send regular text messages on my iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

Why can't I send regular text messages on my iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

Your iPhone can receive not only iMessages, which are indicated by blue bubbles, but regular old SMS messages as well, which are represented by green bubbles. If you're using an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and find yourself only able to send and receive blue bubble iMessages, you don't seem to be alone. This is the question from you guys, or readers, that we're going to tackle this week.

I have an iPhone 6 and can not send or receive regular SMS messages, I am only receiving and sending iMessages. Why isn't my regular SMS working?

This how-to is part of our iOS Help feature, where every week I try and help you fix the problems you're having with your iPhones and iPads. If you have a question or need help with something iOS related that you just can't figure out, I encourage you to drop a question in our iMore forums, no registration required, or send me an email at ioshelp@imore.com

How Apple Watch will be your next remote control

How Apple Watch will be your next remote control

Information broker. Health tracker. Digital wallet and keys. Communicator. Remote Control. We might not have gotten it presented on stage like that, but we still got it — it's all one product. It's the Apple Watch.

Just like the iPhone and iPad, different people will find each of those features compelling to a greater or lesser degree, and which ones they find compelling can change over time. The Watch as remote control is a great example: Apple hasn't spent a lot of time on it yet, but it could become much more important as time passes.
