    I just bought an iPhone 4 on iOS 5. Unfortunately I don't have texting included in my plan so I plan on using iMessage Instead. If I send a "text" from messages app to an email (of someone who has iMessage on their iPod or iPhone) will it automatically use iMessage? And what if I send a "text" to an iPhone? Will that immediately use iMessage or will it be a normal text

    in order to know whether it is an "iMessage" or "Text Message", when you type the Receiver's email address or phone number, it will display at the top whether it is an "iMessage" which will use only your 3G or Wi-Fi, or "Text Message" which will cost you.

    Also the blue text bubble will indicate it is an 'iMessage" while a regular "Text Message" will show a green bubble..

    The only way to send iMessages is if both you and the recipient have an iPhone that is on iOS 5, if one of you have iOS5 and the other has iOS4 or lower, iMessages WILL NOT work and you will be charged for text messages

    BTW you have to make sure iMessages is ENABLED in the SETTINGS for both phones

    +1. Be sure to also disable the option to send as text if iMessage is not available.

    Sorry if I'm reiterating but I just want to make sure; if I turn off the option in messages that says "send SMS" and I type in a phone number in messages (who has an iPhone) will it automatically be imessaging (and when I type in the number, will it IMMEDIATELY turn blue and say iMessage in the text box?)

    If you have their email in your contacts and they have an iPhone, it will automatically send it as an iMessage.

    Yes if the iPhone has iOS 5 that you are messaging to, it will be sent as iMessage given that the other person has it enabled, when you put either a phone number or email address doesn't matter which. And yes it will be blue, it might lag and be green for a second or two but will turn blue if everything is in order. I have friends who message me from their iPhones that I didn't even know had iPhones and they come in blue. I also disabled it to send as SMS and I have Verizon block my SMS so I don't receive SMS anyway.

    You'll be fine

    Ultrasn0w and all other software jailbreaks are not availiable for that baseband. Yes, Ultrasn0w is free though.

    Are you willing to do a tethered jailbreak?

    Alright here's the breakdown to you:

    • iOS 5.1 can be jailbroken, but it's tethered.
    • Tethered means that you can't reboot or turn off your device, doing so will cause you to lose all jailbreak applications and tweaks.
    • There is absolutely no way to unlock the current baseband you're on. Gevey Ultra Pro is your only option.

    So that's basically the breakdown for ya...

    SHSH blobs are you're only way to get to an un-tethered firmware right now (5.0.1). Basebands cannot be downgraded, only upgraded. If you'd like to stay at an unlockable baseband, just make a custom iPSW and use that to upgrade. Here's unlockable basebands for you: [How To] Check if you can Unlock

    When you restore or upgrade to a newer firmware, your baseband is automatically updated to the latest version making an unlock not possible. Older basebands are always better as they are normally unlockable, newer basebands aren't good.
