Apple's iMessage service having problems.Portions of Apple’s mobile messaging service, iMessage, appear to be down for many this afternoon.

Users across Facebook and Twitter are reporting errors with iMessage. For some, messages will not load, and/or the application hangs when a user attempts to send a text through iMessage.

For users trying to reach other iMessage recepients via a cell phone connection, iMessage will eventually fail over to the SMS service, and send the message as a traditional text message, but that process can often take several minutes to occur.

Apple has noted on their Support Status page that they are currently experience issues with both iMessage and FaceTime services. No further information has been offered, and no estimated time of fixing the issue has been provided.
