I was told when using iMessage and someone is on phone the message will change color. Is that true?

    In the default Messaging app there is not a color change if they are using their device. The blue bubble is for sending iMessage and the green bubble is for sending SMS messages. If iMessage is being used, Read and Delivered are the only read receipts that will show up.

    However, a popular messaging up called Kik does do what you are asking, the Delivered icon will darken if the user is currently in the app, that may be what you have heard before.
