How to Switch Between iMessage & Text Message on iPhone [SwitchService Cydia Tweak]

There are thousands of tweaks that successfully make into iPhones and iPads of people, but very few leave a mark, i.e. stay in our devices for long time. A couple of months back, BiteSMS became a popular Jailbreak app that had replaced stock Messages app.

The app had some beautiful features that made it very popular. A feature that was especially liked by all was its ability to switch between messages as iMessages and standard Text message.

Unfortunately, the tweak BiteSMS is not available now. But no worries! We have got another wonderful Jailbreak tweak: SwitchService. This new app can do the similar wonder of toggling between iMessages and Text message.

After you install SwitchService on your iPhone, launch the stock Message app. Tap on any message thread and press the Send button for long time to toggle between Text message and iMessages.

While performing this action, you can see that color of Send button gets changed to display the protocol to be used to send a message. Green color of Send button indicates an Text message and Blue color of Send button shows an iMessage.

In the Settings app of your iPhone, you can check the preference panel of SwitchService. From this panel, you can Enable and Disable the tweak, change the TOUCH HOLD TIME and Enable/Disable Vibration. If you shorten the TOUCH HOLD TIME, it will reflect on long-press time, which will work faster on your iPhone.

This SwitchService is available on Creatix repo; if you haven’t uploaded on your iPhone, you can add from this link: repo.ioscreatix.com.
