    I recently switched from an iPhone 6 to a Galaxy S6. I turned iMessage off on all my Apple devices before switching. I can receive regular SMS and MMS from iPhone users as long as it isn't a group message. However, I can't receive any messages from iPhone users if it's a group message. What's going on and how do I fix this?

    Welcome to Android Central! Sometimes, you have to call Apple Support yourself and make sure they've completely removed your number from their iMessage servers: Issues with texts after moving to Android from iPhone? Here's an easy fix! | Android Central

    I'm in the same boat.

    I switched from iPhone to Android. I followed all the directions about turning off iMessage first. I de-registered the phone number on the apple site as well and it said it was no longer registered with iMessage. The problem is when I send messages to a group of people I used to have an iMessage thread with, they get my messages but I do not get any of their replies (they are all on iMessage).

    I can get individual texts from them but no longer do I get the group replies in that thread.

    The group reply is sent as an iMessage, which you won't get. Apple's been promising to fix the mess for a few years, but it's only the 21str century, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

    If you (or they) start the thread as a new thread, it might work.
