Right, after retesting things and still having the same issue, here's how I sorta worked around it.
Currently Texting SMS as per normal, but when we want to use iMessage, my wife turns it on her iPhone, and sends me an iMessage. Once I receive we can send nd receive iMessages as per normal.
The issue still remains in that when I send an iMessage and my wife has it turned off on her phone, she still doesn't receive it as for what ever reason the iMessage is not made into a normal SMS, as it shows as delivered on my phone. I have to select the imessage I have just sent, and if it shows an option "send as SMS" then select that to resend as a SMS. This is the only way from my end that I can tellies he has iMessage turned on or not (if there is no 3rd option of "send as SMS" then the iMessage has been sent and received).

Someone mentioned this earlier, but it sounds to me like another device is configured with her mobile number as an iMessage contact. That's the most plausible explanation since an iMessage txt won't appear as delivered unless a device has actually received it. Your wife won't receive it in either format if it's going to another device.

As mentioned, I'd get her to log into her Apple ID account and have a look at which devices her phone number is associated with.

I had this issue when I moved from my iPhone to Nexus 4 and forgot to unregister iMessage specifically for that device. Other iOS users would message me and I'd never receive anything as it was still thinking I had iMessage (which technically as far as the system was concerned - I did).

I think removing the Apple ID account from an iOS device doesn't de-register the iMessage number, this may have changed now but there is definitely still a bug in certain scenarios.

Thanks,will have a another play tonight with her laptop to check all this. We had both upgraded iPhones so this could be the logical explanation.
