iMessages still sending when VPN is struggling to connect
Hello, I run iOS 11.0.3 on iPhone 8+. Also run the latest Freedome app normally connecting to Melbourne, Australia. I run the VPN all the time. I've noticed that the connection drops at least a couple times a day. I usually delete the VPN profile and reconnect which sorts the problem for a while. Today I've switched IKEv2 off and will see how that goes. Interesting thing I saw today. I tried to check email using the iOS app which failed because Freedome was struggling to connect (spinning wheel). I tried to access DuckDuckGo in Safari and it failed, unreachable server. But while I was doing all that I received an iMessage (blue colour) from a contact. I was also able to send one which came up as delivered. The VPN status was still not ON at this stage. Is this normal? If mail and the browser are struggling to send/receive, why would iMessage be OK? Thanks in advance.
