When an Android user joins the chat, their message bubbles turn green. It's a simple way for iPhone users to know that certain iMessage features will not work anymore because there's an Android device in the chat.
For green messages, the texts that are sent are compatible with a wider range of phones and receiving services than blue iMessage texts. Since Android and other carriers operate within the SMS and MMS standards of text communication, these green texts are more versatile in who they can reach with their texts.
All replies. Blue messages are sent as iMessages to another iOS device, green ones are being sent as texts to other devices, the grey ones are incoming messages. To add a bit to the above. Blue messages are sent to someone who is actively using iMessage.
If you have enabled Siri suggestions on your iPhone, you will see the maybe contact on the lock screen of your device. One of the ways to fix that is to disable the Siri suggestions on your iPhone as shown below. Launch the Settings app from the springboard of your iPhone and tap on Siri.
Is this an SMS, or is it an iMessage. If an iMessage, did you block the number, or the Apple ID. If you just added the number, then it may be coming from the Apple ID. If you blocked the contact, make sure it includes the number and caller ID.
Common benign (non-serious) causes — If you see a small amount of bright red blood on the toilet paper after wiping, on the outside of your stool, or in the toilet, this may be caused by hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. Both of these conditions are benign, and there are treatments that can help.

If your iPhone keeps overheating, even when it's not that hot outside, it's probably worth checking there's not an app causing the problem. Go to Settings, and then select General. From there, hit iPhone Storage and you'll see a list of all your apps, along with how much storage they take up.
If the text message that won't send has a photo or video in it, or you're trying to text a group of people, confirm that the settings to support these features are enabled. Select Settings > Messages. Under SMS/MMS, toggle MMS Messaging and Group Messaging to the On (green) position.
What this means is that if you've exceeded your phone plan's data limit, or you're out of range of LTE or Wi-Fi, iMessage won't work. Your phone will likely resend the text as a green bubble SMS. One way to check if you have access to data is to do a Safari search or refresh your Instagram feed.

If you see a green message bubble instead of a blue one, then that message was sent using MMS/SMS instead of iMessage. There are several reasons for this: The person that you sent the message to doesn't have an Apple device. iMessage is turned off on your device or on your recipient's device.
If you are using SMS messaging to contact someone then the best way to know if their phone is on or off is by seeing if the message gets delivered. If a message isn't delivered it doesn't always mean the phone is off.
