Just For The Record

Just For The Record

Just For The Record is a blog written by a great friend of mine, who is almost as funny as she thinks she is. 😛

Please check out her blog and support her in her new efforts!

Welcome!

If you have found this site blog please contact me immediately – you will be my first (possibly last) visitor and even if it’s accidental I would like to thank you personally…because you are possibly proof miracles and sympathy site visits do happen.

This entire blog started from being told I was hilarious – not just funny … funny people stay on Facebook – I am apparently hilarious… first lesson of this fun filled page – do not build up the mildly talented – they will take your confidence in them and create multimillion dollar blogs … don’t look at me like that … it could happen.

My boyfriend has told me there are free blog sites … I was half way through purchasing this site when he told me – it’s like he hasn’t even met me… I will put a lot of money into something before I know…

How to stop sending iMessage texts to a Contact

iMessage

So, I had this issue: my Father-in-Law had replaced his iPhone with a Samsung Galaxy III. However, my iPhone insisted on sending iMessages to him even though his mobile number had been ported across to the new phone. This led to messages never getting to him or failing.

So, for those of you who don’t know, if you send an iMessage from your iPhone and it is struggling to get through (classic example of this occurring was during the Boxing Day Sales at our local shopping centre… too many people have iPhones these days :P), you can hold your finger down on the iMessage bubble and you will get the option to “Send as Text Message”.

This is great!  However, you don’t want to have to do this EVERY time you want to text someone who has broken their shackles and fled the Apple Eco-system.  After a bit of searching, I discovered on a forum that after you force a number of iMessage txts to “Send as Text Message”, your iPhone gets the point, and stops sending iMessage texts to that person (though no one could agree how many texts that needed to be forced).

My solution to this is simple:

  1. On your iPhone, go to the Message app.
  2. Tap the “New Message” icon.
  3. In the To field, select the Contact that you wish to stop sending texts via iMessage to.
  4. In the message field, type “?” and tap the Send button.
  5. Hold your finger on the new text “bubble” and select “Send as Text Message”.
  6. Repeat Step 4 & Step 5 until your iPhone stops trying to automatically send your texts to that Contact via iMessage.

Enjoy!

Welcome to 2013

So, once again we have been disappointed by another lack-luster Apocalypse, and have staggered into yet another new year. Welcome to 2013 and everything that that means to each of you.

Still wondering where my friggin flying car (from The Jetsons, of course) is… *sigh*

I hope that all of you have had a great Christmas and have survived NYE relatively unscathed. May 2013 be everything that you need and more!
