  • Regarding Chuck’s question about the spinning beach ball while using iMessage: This makes me wonder if he’s not encountering some of the same iMessage issues that I was with my client a few months ago.  I would be curious to see if he is syncing a large list of contacts in a Google account. That seem to be the issue for me, and simply turning off contacts sync to that Gmail account resolved it.
