    Just curious.. Have you tried calling them (Apple) to see if they can remove your number from iMessage? I've seen a few times where people called and were able to have it fixed.

    Sent from my Verizon HTC One M8 using AC Forums.
    I did and it didn't do anything. Even the apple agent said it could take up to 45 days for me to be out of their servers and I did everything else suggested to remove my iCloud account, turn off iMessage, etc before I got rid of my last iPhone.

    Wow, I've always disliked Apple, but this is shocking even from them. You should look into that iMessages lawsuit because they are essentially holding you hostage, and that absolutely has to be illegal. You should be able to move away from Apple if you want to (and there's plenty of good reasons to do so).

    hope you get this worked out and don't have to stick with such an ugly company!

    What's the payoff for the lawsuit ? I don't even know if it's worth it at this point. It's extremely frustrating though. The gold m8 was tooooooo perfect.

    The agent is full of crap. At most it may take 48 hrs. He doesn't know how or just didn't want to remove your number from the icrap service. No way I would go back ever.

    You guys aren't getting the point. I can't be mad and not go back and risk missing important messages and communication for work, etc. because the messages aren't going through. Believe me. I have a lot of pride and want to "show them" but it's irresponsible without a fix, even if it's their fault.

    Tell the sender to change the color of the text box to blue or green, the opposite of what it is now by long pressing on your contact. Don't remember the exact procedure but you can Google it. I did this awhile back with my wife's phone & it learned to send direct, avoiding iPhone network

    Right. But sometimes people try to contact you that you don't talk to every day.

    That blows. I get texts from people and some people I don't get. They have iPhones and I used to have one. Anyway that blows.

    I don't think it's fair to the companies like htc , lg , even samsung.

    Lol, I have an iPhone among my android phones, and I always keep imessage off when I put my SIM in it. I see no benefit having it on as I have unlimited messaging anyway and I have no desire to sms from my iPad. My suggestion, put your sim back to your iPhone and just stay in the green bubble. Latter when you decide to come back to android, you will have no problem.

    That's Apple. They hold you prisoner.

    I had this issue its a simple fix, the people that text under iMessage have turn off iMessage setting on their phone. They only have to text you once it switches to sms. Thereafter you can text them back and stays sms, they can later turn on iMessage and it won't effect your settings.

    It's behavior like this that I left Apple for Android. Here is the simple fix. Have your iPhone friends delete your phone number from their contacts (it is now categorized as an "iPhone")) and have them re-enter it as a "mobile" number.

    I have never used Apple or an iMessage in my life. I get work done and communicate with friends. Why do you need iMesage? Just tell everyone to test you normally.

    You've got an iProblem and the iSolution is to get the iHeck out of there.

    I think his big problem is that it's not just friends, it's clients that he is not friends with that would not be able to get in touch with him via text. I don't think it would be feasible, or professional, to ask clients to alter their phones to accommodate you in most cases.
