Easily send SMS instead of iMessage

When you want to send an SMS (green bubble) to someone instead of an iMessage (blue bubble) normally you do this;

1. You type the message
2. Press "send"
3. When the blue message bubble appears you touch and hold it until you get the option "Send as SMS"

Part 3 fails very often because iMessage is so quickly sending it out, when you have good network connectivity.


1. Switch of WiFi
2. Type the message
3. Press "send"
4. Now you have more time touching and holding the blue bubble and select "Send as SMS"
