Found a confusing “use case” with iMessage on the MAC OS X:
Sent two texts this morning, one worked and one failed repeatedly.
Figured out why it was failing, duh.
I text from the mac because I like the full keyboard. I text X and Y every morning and night. (“I’m alive … still!”)
This morning X’s went through to her iPhone as usual, but Y’s didn’t.
Then I realized iMessage uses the iPhone to text Y with SMS. And my iPhone was out of power. And, the MAC version of iMessage just reports: “not sent”.
Which technically is true, but it should say something like “no response from your Iphone, dummy”. Argh!
Strike one for a poor design. Or is that “a feature”?
