  • The receiving device has no working Internet connection. Cellular data wouldn’t be enabled or it might be out of the range of Wi-Fi.
  • The receiving device is on AirPlance Mode.

iMessages that are sent will be queued up and will be sent to the receiving device when it has a working internet connection. If you are sending to someone and the receiving device is working correctly with Active Internet Connection then you should:
