>that's a nice phone anon, but can it send blue text? No? Oh... (slowly backs away)
this happened to me today at the McDonalds as I was waiting for the order and was checking email with my OnePlus One. this meme is pissing me off! did /g/ start this shit???
I'm not really versed in this as I don't use non-free software but AFAIK you can send imsgs from a Mac. with that you could write an xmpp transport for imsg. guess you'd have to run It on an apple server
Nope. I assume it started on twitter or some normie site, some fag posted about it here as all his twitter friends were putting him down because of his Android - since then it pops up on /g/ from time to time.
>"can your phone send blue text"
>you can't edit the color of your texts? I can. That must suck for you.
>leave the autist that take iphone memes seriously
is that really so hard?
>you use your favorite xmpp client
I can confirm that this is complete nonsense and there isn't a single xmpp client out there that can talk to iMessage server. You don't know what the hell you're talking about.
>Anon, why are you sending me awful green texts? Please don't message me ever again!
obviously as xmpp and Imsg are completely different protocols. now read again: you would have to write a transport component which translates xmpp <=> imsg which is AFAIK relatively easy as one can write imsgs from their Mac if they own one.
doesn't matter what it is if it can't send blue bubbles, you're fucked. ever tried Tinder and then got some chick's phone number? if you use android, they'll give you hell and some won't even reply.
the hate is very real:
>people sign up for imessage
>people switch to android
>they don't deregister the phone # from imessage
>becomes black hole for any iphone user to send you a text where you don't get it
Apple is fucking evil on this one. if your device hasn't been online for 7 days, any attempt to send a message should be either duplicated or solely in text rather than requiring active deauth by a user.
Is this just an American thing or is it happening in other places too? Seriously, how fucking shallow do you have to be to care what phone someone uses let alone the color of a god damn text message?
because they're popular. also, you don't grok basic logic and statistics. if you see an android user, there's a 90% probability they're a minority. if you see an iphone user, there's 90% probability they're well off.
Good thing Galaxy's are so popular, they know it is a expensive phone.
probably only a thing where a majority of people use apple. not in Europe afaict.
but there's another factor: ameritards literally have to pay to receive SMS (w/o flatrate that is) which is also different in Europe.
also I think most people here use whatsapp
Sorry meant to post this link: http://www.statista.com/statistics/291540/mobile-internet-user-whatsapp/
>More like, a 50% or higher probability that they're into debt keeping up with the Joneses.
> chat with the girl I love for years with my Android
> eventually get iPhone
> she now receives proper iMessages from me
> invites me to cinema after the first iMessage I sent
> we are now together
It's like Android are self cukcing machines.
>Is this just an American thing or is it happening in other places too? Seriously, how fucking shallow do you have to be to care what phone someone uses let alone the color of a god damn text message?
It's a UK thing too! I think it's happening in all of the 1st world countries.
Not really, I just live in an area where I see it all the fucking time. And it's not even a minority thing either, whites get caught up in the race too. Possibly more so because they have a little more money and automatically think they're the fucking shit while the people with real money are all living in god damn mansions a couple towns away.
This is a good shilling tactic, since it plays to /g/'s insecurities. There's a lot of overlap between /g/ and /r9k/, Apple must have noticed this - hence the rise of "literally buying an iPhone got girls directly on my dick" posts the past year.
God tier marketers, you gotta give them that.
>mfw Android users are literal cucks buying phones that can't do blue text
>look I accept being cucked and even defend it
when's he last time you got laid? never mind.. I'm arguing with a virgin who doesn't understand normal people.
Majority of iPhone users are so ridiculously tech illiterate it actually hurts.
>tfw they think some shit tier galaxy ace represents an entire platform
I'm an iPhone user, I don't need it to score though.
About a month ago. Okay, I'm not slaying pussy but I do alright. Point is if you're so ugly you need your phone to do the work for you, you need to sort your shit out.
Bitch better download blackberry messenger for your iToy.
Can't risk security leaks.
>Does this actually happen in America?
being this out of touch.... kid, get out more.
It's very fucking real! It's especially bad with women 16-40. Almost all of them are on iPhones.
And it's happening at workplaces as well.
>people who are so insecure/deluded/stupid that they think they're rich for getting an iPhone through their contract
>people who are petty enough to care about this
>minorities trying to act like they're white
>girls who failed math class
You only have yourselves to blame for associating with these people. Once you get out of college and/or your entry-level retail job and get a good career in a technical field, these people fall out of sight.
This actually happened to me before I had an iPhone. iMessage group chat is fucking stupid.
I don't live in America, and I've never seen or heard of this happening in Aus.
People are impressed with any pretty flagship phones, S6, M9, iPhone, whatever, and most people have Androids where I am.
This sounds to me like it's perpetuated by faux-wealthy middle class people who'll never achieve much.
>middle class white people who think they're rich for buying a phone
>This actually happened to me before I had an iPhone. iMessage group chat is fucking stupid.
but there's nothing else it can do because SMS protocol is such shit and doesn't work well with groups of people. the only option would be for apple to make iMessage for android but that would mean they'd have to support Samsung's phones which they will never do.
But yeah, android and its lack of immesage client is fucking toxic for your social life if your friends are normal people.
Why do you give a shit, anon? So what if you didn't waste a ton of money on an iPhone for the sole purpose of having an iPhone? If you're happy with your OnePlus One, then fuck it! I'm happy with mine, and I could care less about iOS elitists.
>and then she told me to replace my blackberry with an apple toy considering their security flaws
>Apple's baby sandbox.
so now you have dozens of spyware on your phone. every fucking android app needs access to everything because they make money by taking your contacts, phone history etc and sell it to make some money. great upgrade there chief!
is this why iphone6 broke all sales records and samsung was toppled as #1 phone maker even though 90% of samsung's phones were cheapass phones?
no idea about Aus. I can tell you about America.
wealthy people predominantly choose iPhone.
> Android Is For Poor People: Maps - Business Insider
>A new Pew study says the majority of Americans now own smartphones and the majority of rich, educated adults own iPhones.
>Surprise; Apple's iPhones Are Expensive So Rich People Are More Likely To Have Them
You can tell where the rich people are in the city by looking at iPhone distribution. Yes, really.
If that's their reasoning then they'll meet the same fate the other companies who only looked in the books did... asking themselves what went wrong since they were selling so well!
I'd fucking love it if some dumb slut assumed I was poor because of my phone
lol, guess i won't be taking you to my multi-million dollar house in my porsche so we can fuck while blasting porn in my home theater then, shallow cunt
>Group message only to imessage users
That's weird. I use an Android and I've sent and received TONS of group texts to/from people, iphone or no, with no problem whatsoever. Is that a new thing?
>so now you have dozens of spyware on your phone
maybe if you're so fucking stupid that you need apple's restrictions to prevent you from downloading sexyboob.apk and infecting your phone like a dumbass. maybe that's why iphones are so popular
>every fucking android app needs access to everything because they make money by taking your contacts, phone history etc and sell it to make some money
yeah, except android can actually run open source software that isn't on the app-store, so you can avoid apps that do that
it's like you've never stepped outside of your fisher price ecosystem before
>lol, guess i won't be taking you to my multi-million dollar house in my porsche so we can fuck while blasting porn in my home theater then, shallow cunt
that's because you're not rich and never will be just judging by the way you think.
>you're not rich
nice assumption. too bad it's wrong
>guess i won't be taking you to my parent's $1000/mo apartment in my mid-90s caprice so we can fail to attempt intercourse while blasting porn (because that's what people do when they have sex) on my logitech speakers then
FTFY. You sound 15 btw.
>People judge other people based on their choice of phone
That's a thing?
A thing that happens in the real world?
Where is this place that this is happening? This sounds like a magical place where all the problems of the world are solved, so people have to resort to such a petty and insignificant thing to base self-worth on. I wish to live there.
>>that's a nice phone anon, but can it send blue text? No? Oh... (slowly backs away)
>this happened to me today at the McDonalds as I was waiting for the order and was checking email with my OnePlus One. this meme is pissing me off! did /g/ start this shit??
Why should it matter what color the text is? Or am I missing something here?
In a hundred years when immersive virtual worlds have been perfected and interacting with your friends in fantasy settings is the norm, people using non-Apple VR products will be displayed as ugly, short green people to people who are using Apple VR products. As time spent in the real world diminishes, this causes large problems and is eventually a factor in the downfall of mankind, but no one ever asks Apple what possessed them to do this.
>yeah, except android can actually run open source software that isn't on the app-store, so you can avoid apps that do that
who gives a shit when 99% of it is garbage? you don't get any of the apps made by top companies because they always develop for Android few years after they've become popular on ios.
>Mfw comparing text color is like comparing a person height.
I like how no one has pointed out that OP said he was in MCDONALDS when someone made fun of him (assuming this actually happened) for having an Android phone.
>buying $1 cheeseburgers and thinking you're rich
>have an ipad and only ended up disliking iOS even more
When I'm so invested in apps such as tasker and the ability to manage downloads, iOS just becomes a brick. It makes your life harder with its iTunes restrictions when it should make life easier. The smartphone which isn't smart
This nigga gets it, I was a pathetic virgin, I used Arch linux in a "Batlestation" in my parents bassement I played ero-VN with wine, and watched animu every day. I had an andoid phone but the few girls I met when I sent green bubles they didn't repply or say eww gren (like saying, what a disgusting manchildren).
Then I decided not to be a virgin forever. Sell my ridiculous "battlestetaion" my "gammer chair" my placebo headphones all all that shit, and I bought an iMac, a Macbook pro and a Iphone 5. I left the doritos and the moutaing dew (now I drink green tea and eat dried fruits while in the computer) and stoped wacthing anime and playing games for /v/irgings. Also I had now much more free time because my OS just worked out of the box so no more hours fixing my xorg.conf. Because that new free time I decided to go to starbucks with my new Macbook pro and my Iphone. I met a girl there and she was behaving like no other female I saw before, she talked to me and after a while she left me her phone number and left. The next day I sent her a blue message to meet her, but instead of getting ignored as always she wanted to meet.
After watching a good film she invited me to her home we had lots of crazy sex. I lost my virginity, thanks to Apple, unveliable.
But the crazy thing is that those girls that ignored my messages before, after sending them one in blue text they replied and replied. I now have 3 girls that seems that want my dick, they are pretty qt and I am having a hard time choosing only one.
In iOS SMSs are sent in green textboxes, while messages in iMessage are blue. It's the app that Apple users use to send each other messages for free.
Ergo: When you can't send/receive bluetext, you don't own an iPhone.
Speak for yourself. I'd hate not being able to download high quality albums and manage them on the fly. I can't remember the last time I've had to sync my phone to my pc to move files over
You're telling people who have a phone that you don't have that it doesn't actually function as it does when they use it. Your plan of shitposting is as effective as the fucks who say "if you're not on Facebook then you're a social pariah" to people who have healthy social lives.
But I mean, if you can give one practical function that can't be found on Android, that would be swell.
>new guy at work
>this kid could easily pass for a ladyboy
>wonders why no-one else has iPhones
>my face when
>implying that's what normalfags see
All they care about is some way to act superior. They don't care and possibly don't know the difference between iMessage and SMS other than "green is the android one".
I am a girl, and very grateful to apple for doing this, because the color of your texts are the best a way to filter out the manchildren, creeps, loosers, ghetto drewels... with just one message you send. Sure they did that green text thing to help us girls to identify the huge loosers quicky so we don't waste our precious time hehe.
>blue messages = iMessage, not sms, it goes through data
What happens if you or the person you are messaging are in an area with no data coverage? Apple will just stop your phone from sending a regular SMS at all?
Just outgoing. All incoming messages are grey.
High schoolers, college students,, and rich/educated people from my experience. It's pretty dumb though, so I wouldn't sweat it. (Most people that think this was are so caught up in stereotypes that if you went I'M A COMPUTAR EXPART they'll see owning an Android phone as a positive.)
How exactly do you intend to do that? The only way ive seen to programatically access iMessage on a mac is through applescript, and the message received handlers are pretty broken in the latest version of OS X. Theoretically you could access the core libraries behind the gui, but they are undocumented as far as i know.
Genuinely curious, this is some shit ive been trying to do for awhile now.
>considering I never heard of this shit outside of /g/ I wouldn't consider it world wide. Maybe some high school kids or retards actually take it seriously or something.
where are u? in US is prevalent.
>Own an iPhone 5, it's not connected to any Carrier, so it's just like an iPod
>(replacing) my Oppo Find 7, because Android is fucking glorious
seriously. why don't any of you just buy an iPhone off ebay of Amazon, if these shallow bitches these days care so much about a text color?
This is it when phones are more toys than practical tools. bought 2013 nexus 5 and i dont give shit changing phones since new models does not offer anything new. I want see how long it lasts
I can do same things, have same apps and with my phone and as long its happening with shittons of lag its okey
This. If blue texts are literally the only way standing between you and dicking a bitch, just buy a cheap ass 3GS or 4 for 50 bucks and use your actual phone for everything else.
But if blue texts really are the only reason you don't have a sex life you really need to reevaluate your entire life.

You deserve to be cucked if this is why you're not having sex, simple as that.
I've been in the iPhone game all my life. Apple watch coming in soon. I'm getting mad pussy.
I've run some tests with this. Having a few android/windowsphone friends and 802.11ac and n networks (for my iPhone 5/6+ family) we tried messaging from macbook to iPhone on wifi, iPhone to other iPhone (on wifi, with cellular data) and compared it with iMessage disabled. Even brought in iPhones from other carriers (over their data). iMessages seemed to get sent/recieved faster than SMS for the most part across the board. From a handful of seconds to nearly a few dozen. Not trying to shill, there were sporadic and just sort of a random 5 minutes a day when we had certain people as company (since everyone has a smart phone)
that's because SMS flows through carriers' networks which are antiquated shit and Apple's flow through their own distributed server farms.
plus SMS is a shit protocol overall. it's so fucking bad.
Why on earth would you want to be friends or date people who care about what fucking colour the box around a message is.
I own an S5, friends own iPhones and I've never heard such bullshit in all my life. They don't care, I think this might be an American thing.
why are people so fucking inconsiderate
>ANON I DONT WANT TO MAKE A WHATSAPP TO KEEP YOUUPDATED
bitch it's literally imessage but you can talk to more than just your vapid iphone friends
>why are people so fucking inconsiderate
>People choosing a phone based on what color the text is on the screen
I don't think "inconsiderate" is the right word to capture this, try "dangerously moronic".
>Not using what's app or even Line
Fucking plebiscite I swear to god.
Tfw in my country I phones are considered overpriced toys and Androids are considered more productive cellphones.
What the fuck is going on here?
I fucking hate green text messages! Are you stuck in 2002 faggot? Quit sending me sms, it's fucking slow! Good thing you don't really have to deal with it too much here in America. If I lived in eurocuck land I would go insane
People are still texting enough for this to matter? The only one who ever texts me is my mom, usually when she wants me to get something from the store but sometimes to remind me not to give up or to ask me to go make some friends. I thought everyone just talked online now.
can confirm this is true
my sister's bf brought her a itouch and she got so snotty over emails because of this sent from my iphone shit
Question is why are iPhones so god damn popular when they're not even all that great? I went from the iPhone 5s to the LG G3 and the G3 is better in every single way possible. Fuck, even the Galaxy phones are better.
>when they're not even all that great
it's better than any Androshit phone, that's for sure.
90% of whatsapp users are on shit-phones "smart"phones or dumb phones. seriously majority of their users are using J2ME Whatsapp.
it's no wonder europoors use that Facebook-owned shit.
as I said I don't use non-free software I just remember some post on hackerjews where you could write and read I think imsgs from the cmd.
don't really care if apple kills your scripting support with every new version
