Thanks again for trying to help. I changed the settings just like you said, but then when I tried to iMessage one of mine friends ( who owns an iPhone of course), it put a red exclamation mark next to his name. I don't get it
If there's anything else I could do or read please let me know.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help.

I have found that the red exclamation mark will normally denote that the person you are sending to is either not on OS5 or has not activated iMessage on their phone. Do you know for sure that he has iMessage and that it is activated?

You need to have iMessage activated and have your contact email input in these settings. Have you set up your notifications and alerts also. Have a look also at the email address or phone number on which you are trying to contact him, are they correct and do you have the number set to the international standard in your contacts. There is a bit of conjecture on whether you need to have just a normal mobile no. or the international standard of having the + in front of the number. It works both ways for me but I am in Australia and this could be different for you.
Check and make sure that he is set up properly on his iPhone though. Good luck and let us know how you go.
