Really? You after the "cool" factor or something? A lot of my friends have iPhones and a lot Androids. Dont care what they have really.
He already explained his issue:
I am going to take the high road and explain to you what the big deal with that is.
iMessages are huge when it comes to iphones. iphones do a really good job dealing with MMS and group messages. androids do an AWFUL job with that. it's super annoying to have a group chat with 3 friends who are sending messages and pictures back and fort over wifi while I sit there with my S3 waiting for the network to load a small text that has to be sent as an MMS because it's a group message.... and yes I have tried all the messaging apps. none of them work properly. 3 things I do on a phone. text, email, use maps. unfortunately, my S3 doesn't do any of those the way i want it to.
