    Ive been using iMessage quite frequently as well as sending photos through it, but as of 2 days ago it will no longer send photos. Just constantly comes up saying not delivered but no reason as to why. Anyone know what's going on?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, let us know if this fixes the problem.

    Have you checked all your settings for iMessage, sometimes they can be changed and we don't realise. If they are all okay do a restart and/or reset of your iPad.
    Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating, if not a reset is in order.

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.

    No not at all, this reset is just like rebooting a PC and there will be no change.

    There have been a few reports of iMessage being a little flaky lately. Try turning it off and then on again in settings and see if this makes a difference. I would do a restart after turning it off and try for a fresh activation, let us know how you go.
