    Hi! So I got rid of my old iphone 6 for a new google pixel which I absolutely love. Only issue is the rest of my friends are still iphone users and we want to set up a group chat. I kept the same number when I switched and we have been trying to get a group message started but we haven't been successful. We've tried turning off imessage, I've set up new group chats, sending MMS messages and I've reset my settings and nothing has worked. They all get my messages but I don't get replies from them. Any advice?

    They all have all of them set as SMS? (They have to each send all the other ones in the group 1 text marked as SMS.)

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you called Apple Support and confirmed that you number was removed from the iMessage servers?

    Merging all the replies...

    Two things need to happen:
    - Your phone number needs to be "unregistered" from the iMessage system
    - All your iPhone friends need to update your contact info in their phones to show you as SMS not iMessage.
