    Try using your iphone and turning off imessage and send a few text as text messages not imessages then switch over your sim and see if it works

    Turn off imessage on your old iPhone. That's all I had to do when I switched over to android.

    I actually had to do this once when I switched to my M7 and then I had to do it again, months later for some reason.

    Easiest way, is to CALL apple. They can remove your number from the iMessage servers. My wife and I both had this issue UNTIL finally calling in. Since then, no issue.

    Can confirm - without actually talking to Apple, your iPhone friends will send you blue texts and think you're mad at them because you aren't responding.

    This happened to me after my 2 weeks with an iPhone.

    They need to select on their phone to send as SMS if imessage is not available. So txt them and ask them to do this. It worked for me.

    I switch between ios and Android all the time. The quickest and easiest way to get everything right AFTER you turn it off on your old device is to have the other person start a new conversation with you and it should then send it as a text. For some reason the existing conversation takes a while to figure out you're not using imessage anymore. For the iPhone user the conversation will merge but it will send as text. I do this all the time with my wife as she has an iPhone. So if you can, have some of the users start a new convo and see what happens. Good luck.

    I'm having hell with group MMS. Two of us bought Android phones on the same day (previously had iphones), and there's 3 other iphones in the message. We both deactivated imessage. Had everyone delete our messaging threads and our contacts. We're still having issues. I guess we could give calling apple a shot.

    This will probably work best, but if you don't want to do that and you still have the iOS device then turn it on and enable then disable iMessage again. This is what I had to do months after I initially did this when I got my M7.

    It's 24 hours, but Verizon has no idea on this, so don't really pay that any attention. This takes 24 hours if you don't turn off iMessage before turning your phone in. It can take upwards of 24 hours, as it takes a little bit to work it's way through all their systems. In all honesty, I think Hangouts would take about the same time, but as Hangouts is available on iPhone for people who for whatever reason go Android -> iPhone, it doesn't matter as much if they can turn off Hangouts.

    Also, have your friends turn on "Send as SMS" in Settings -> iMessage, as well as making sure they are texting your *phone number* not your AppleID, and that your phone number in their contact list is listed as a Phone not an iPhone. This will help it take less than 24 hours, otherwise, it's just 24 hours.

    That is honestly surprising. Just tell them you need them to "revoke certificates", took me all of 5 minutes...

    Exactly - this was the fix for me. Unfortunately you need to text or tell everyone with an iphone to goto settings->messages and turn on "Send as SMS"... that will fix it right away...

    Exactly, they are really fast and helpful. The only other you could do is change your apple password. Should happen right away when they unplug you but they will say 72 hours max. I have done this dozens of times. 5 minutes and it's done.

    You can also go to Apple's device management page on their site, log in with your Apple ID, and DELETE the old iPhone from their system. Also, turn off iMessage on any other Apple devices until you have this resolved.

    When I switched from an iPhone I had to delete the old iPhone from my Apple ID and then texts started flowing in immediately. If Apple won't help you on your first call, try going to the store or call again. But you can do it via the website too.

    I still don't understand what's happening with iMessage. My wife has texted me successfully via SMS only later to have a new message go through iMessage (I know that she texted me because I get notification on my computer and iPad). I can text someone from my One and when they reply, it still goes through iMessage. I've turned off iMessage on my iPhone but it still goes through iMessage some of the time. It's incredibly frustrating to have this problem and it's inconsistent and unpredictable which makes it even more annoying.

    Your problem may be that your other devices (computer and iPad) have retained your cellular number as an address you can be reached at. I have had then same problem in the past, I also use a Mac and iPad. I had all my Apple devices set up for iMessage using my iCloud email address and cellular number as "send & receive" addresses. What worked for me was to go into settings on the iPad, then iMessage, send & receive, then tap on your Apple ID and select "sign out", also open iMessage on your computer, open "preferences" select "accounts" and sign out. Once you have signed out of iMessage on all your Apple devices you can then sign back in and your cellular number should not be in the list of "send & receive" addresses on your computer and iPad if you have successfully turned it off on your iPhone.

    Yes, we did that twice and there are still people who can't text me. I've had them turn off their imessage, delete my number, delete the text thread, etc.
