    How can you miss Facetime when you have Hangouts? It's literally the same thing.....

    I did all that. Still having problems. I've learned to just accept it.

    Could you explain how to do what you describe? Still an Android rookie here...
    If you go to settings>display>font, you can change the font type and size. With other launchers, you can change icon size, placement and shadow as Godzillinois was saying.

    Have you tried to start a new group text message? Maybe if they are using an old group text message to text you it still thinks your number is tied to iMessage.

    Yes, even went as far as making everyone erase my contact info and create a new one. Still nothing.

    I would definitely have to say it is an issue with iMessage then. I heard of someone having to reactivate an iPhone to deactivate iMessage to get this problem solved.

    It's just crazy that Apple uses it to trap you in! I really wonder how many people have tried Android and gone back to iOS thinking that it was an issue with Android.

    I had a Note 3, went back to a 6 Plus because of the iMessage issues (with it being known that it was 100% Apple's way of keeping you locked in with them). I'm thinking of giving the Note 4 a shot, and forcing myself to stick with it.

    As awesome and life-changing sliq as the Note 4 is there's no reason to force yourself. You may simply like the 6+ better. If anything, I say see if you can somehow try both simultaneously for a week or two and stick with the one that you prefer after that.

    I really enjoyed the Android / TW experience (lifelong iPhone user)... wished I would've stuck with the Note. The 6 Plus is great, just miss the back button / menu buttons, customization options, etc.

    As small of a feature as it is, it is so wonderful to have a back button!

    I miss group texting my family. I switched from iPhone 5 to the note 3 a year ago (I now have a Note 4) and group messaging hasn't worked right since.

    A couple of my cousins, my wife, and I have a group text going, individually I get all their messages, but no matter what I've tried, I don't receive messages from 2 of my cousins or my wife when group texting. I'm the only one with an Android phone everyone else is on iPhone's.

    I wish I could figure it out. I really hate imessage right now.

    I had this same problem switching back and forth between my iPhone 6 and my Note 4. I knew how to turn off iMessage-- I'm an old hat at that-- and could get individual texts but I was missing half the conversation in a group thread with my mom and my sister (both iPhone users). The fix was relatively easy. Just get everyone in the group thread to delete that thread off their phone. Then, when you've confirmed everyone has done that (via individual texts) someone starts a new group conversation with the same previous participants. That should work. I've had to do that twice now switching over to the Note. Finally I've gotten smart enough to leave iMessage OFF when switching my sim over to my iPhone! I hope that works for you. Good luck!

    That's a good point, hope I remember to logout of iMessage when I switch from my 6 Plus to the Note 4. Hope that keeps the texts coming through!

    I would assume he misses it because no one needs another app (not everyone uses Hangouts) to do it.

    I believe they have a tool (that actually works) for getting you off iMessage. So you could come try Android again! .

    I recently switched from the iPhone 6 to the Note 4. I LOVE the Note 4 and the ability to customize customize customize. I started with the original iPhone and have had every iPhone since. All the while I "played" in Android on and off, but couldn't find the right device for me and mix of Apps. I think the Note 4 is it. Here's a list of Apps I have found to replace Apple Apps I really enjoyed:

    iMessage: Check out "MySMS". I missed iMessage until I found this beauty....there is a Mac desktop App, an iPad App, etc...LOVE this app..and the group messaging works flawlessly, too!
    play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mysms.android.sms

    Notes: Check out "iNotes" -- Syncs with iCloud
    play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dayup.inotes

    Reminders: Check out "Tasks" --- Syncs with iCloud
    play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dmfs.tasks

    Contacts:
    If you want to keep your Google contacts in sync with your iCloud contacts, install "Contacts Sync for Google Gmail" on your MAC. Any changes you make to your Mac (hooked into icloud) will be pushed to gmail. It has 2-way sync as well.

    Calendars:
    If you want to keep your iCloud calendar on your Android, check out "Smooth Sync for Cloud Calendar"
    play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dmfs.caldav.icloud

    Control Center: Try "Control Panel" -- You can customize this one, too ;-)
    play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.verycoolapps.control.center

    Music: Install Google music player ON YOUR MAC and sync it with iTunes - all of your iTunes music is now in Google's cloud and accessible on your Android device, and it's FREE!

    Hope this list helps. Since I only have 3 posts in this forum I had to remove the hyper link, but if you copy/paste those links into your browser you should be able to check those out. I've found a few other things that have really made my switch experience an enjoyable one. I also live in an "all Apple" family, and the only thing I find myself missing now is Facetime, however I can use those on my Mac and iPad.

    I miss iMessage. Just really love that program. It isn't a deal breaker though. I have it on my iPad and Air. I do not miss the headaches I was having with my 4S and IOS 8. It just crushed my poor little iPhone. I never should have upgraded because it was fine on ios7. I have heard lots of iPhones are having iOS 8 issues, though. Even the newer ones.
    Seems hit or miss though-some have issues, some don't.
