How To Receive Messages After Switching From iPhone To Android?

by Raja Habib on November 11, 2014

If you have recently switched from iPhone to Android, you may be facing a delay in receiving the messages or may not be receiving any messages at all. The reason for this is that you may not have disconnected your iMessages from your phone number. You may have removed your Apple Id from your device but may not have disconnected your iMessages service.

You should stop the iMessages service too before switching from iPhone to Android or to other operating systems. Here’s how you can stop the iMessages service on your iPhone (if you still have your iPhone with you):

1. Go to Settings.
2. Go to Messages.
3. Turn iMessages to Off.

But if you don’t have your iPhone with you and still want to turn your iMessages off, you can use an app launched by Apple to do so. Here’s how:

1. Go to Deregister iMessages page (the link is given below).
2. Enter your phone number.
3. Click Send Code.
4. You will receive a code. Submit after entering the confirmation code.
