People have been left out of group chats, ghosted, and shamed about the fact that their texts show up as green bubbles in iMessage. For years now, Apple has turned all non-iPhone users’ text. If the iMessage fails to send and after repeated attempts at sending the message, and if the message turns green rather than blue, the person may have no cellular service, has no data connection, has a problem with their cell service, has a problem with their iPhone, has iMessage turned off, uses an Android phone (or other platform), or possibly has their iPhone turned off or is in the process of rebooting.Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. Based on what you stated, it seems you are experiencing issues with iMessage messages sending unexpectedly as a green message bubble on your iPhone. To help resolve this issue, please follow the steps in this resource on your situation:
In case you see a Green send button, your iPhone is letting you know that the message will be going as a paid SMS Message, using your Carrier’s Cellular Network. In case you see a Blue send button, you can bring a smile to your Face, as the message will be going through Apple’s servers as.
If you see a green message bubble
If you see a green message bubble instead of a blue one, then that message was sent using MMS/SMS instead of iMessage. There are several reasons for this:
- The person that you sent the message to doesn't have an Apple device.
- iMessage is turned off on your device or on your recipient’s device. To check if iMessage is turned on for your device, go to Settings > Messages > iMessage.
- iMessage is temporarily unavailable on your device or on your recipient’s device.
