    I recently had to switch from an Iphone 4 to a Droid because my Iphone got wet but now that I have the Droid, I can't receive text messages from people who have Iphones. Is there an easy fix for this?

    4 parts -

    1. make sure that you have turned off iMessage on your old iPhone.
    2. delete your old phone number and delete/unregister all old iPhone(s) from your Apple ID web profile at supportprofile.apple.c0m.
    3. make sure iPhone-using friends App Settings are set correctly. By default, sending as SMS is not selected in IOS 7. To enable this go into settings>messages>send as SMS. This will send messages as regular SMS messages when imessage isn't available.
    4. spread the word.

    Yeh. It's been a big, big issue.
    It's almost as if Apple don't want customers to move to Android.

    It's not moving to Android that's the issue, it's moving OFF iPhone to ANYTHING.

    Apple should make new buyers sign a lifetime contract, and pledge allegiance in the presence of anyone in a Genius suit. They would sell more.

    I'm sure there would be a lot of people still sticking with them
