I just switched from an iphone and bought the Galaxy S4 and I can't receive any text messages from anyone with an iphone. I have turned off messaging on my ipad and iphone and I still can't receive anything. Can someone please help me with this?
Did you unregister your I Phone off of I tunes? Than you'll have to wait 30 days for Apple to realize you're not an I Phone user anymore. In the mean time, tell your friends to turn off their IMessage. That's what happened to me and I unregistered my I phone. I forgot to turn off my I Message before I recycled my phone. I waited 30 days and it worked after that.
I went to the Verizon store and they told me that the last update from Apple automatically sets IMESSAGE as default and that I had to have my friends change a setting on their phone to turn on SEND AS SMS. My daughter and husband turned that on and now I receive their text messages.
