Why Did I Receive "Not Registered With iMessages" Error in a Group Message?

 

Answer

If an existing group chat consists entirely of iPhone users, messages are not forwarded to traditional SMS/MMS text messaging. When an Android user is added, the contact name shows up in red with "Not registered with iMessage" as the error message. To fix this, the creator of the group message should create a brand new group that includes non-iMessage users. This will tell the group message to use SMS/MMS instead of iMessage.
