Turning iMessage off and back on can sometimes fix a minor software issue when your iPhone is not receiving iMessages. Think of it like restarting your iPhone, but specifically for iMessage.

How Do I Turn iMessage Off And Back On?

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Messages.
  3. Tap the switch next to iMessage. You'll know iMessage is off when the switch is positioned to the left and gray.
  4. Tap the switch again to turn it back on. You'll know iMessage is back on when the switch is green and positioned to the right.
