Kinda Slimey move on Apple to retain customers. There's already a lawsuit against them for it from some woman in California. http://www.androidauthority.com/appl...ndroid-382608/

Don't know if this was intentional by Apple. While that is surely possible, I personally feel its not the case (just a gut feeling), and that it is more of an imperfect implementation of iMessage. And one that they have no motivation to address, as it only effects folks that migrate to non-Apple phones.

I do criticize Apple for taking something long standardized (SMS/MMS) and used by millions across the globe, and making it into something proprietary and non-standard. Something Apple is infamous for; Firewire vs. USB, Lightning connector vs. MicroUSB, proprietary audio and video file formats, and on and on.

Not trying to make this an Android/Apple fanboy thing, or Apple bash-fest. Apple makes some fine devices. I just dislike Apple's love for breaking industry standards. They are called "standards" for a reason.

And its that breaking of widely used standards that has caused the issue in the OP in the first place.
