    iMessage is a major 'feature' of the iOS. Just like being able to make calls is a feature of a landline phone. And editing a Word document a feature of PCs. Or Internet access a feature of ISPs.

    If you were without a landline/Word/Internet for 5 hours, you'd be displeased too. You paid for the product, you expect a certain uptime.
