    Hello, new to the forums so apologies if I don't know what I'm doing.

    I got my Galaxy Note 3 back in January and I absolutely love it!.... But I can't get iPhone messages. My old Motorola was able to receive iMessages, but Samsung doesn't get anything. I did a factory reset on the old phone, but no luck. Before I upgraded, my family switched from Sprint (Photon 4G) to T-Mobile (GN3). I would've thought this was the problem, but my mother (who has the same phone) can get iMessages just fine. Help please? I feel like an Android failure. :

    3 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.

    I never had an iPhone though.. My previous phone was the Motorola Photon 4G. All my friends (who have iPhones) have SMS message settings and I'm still not getting their messages.
