    Before I'd send a text to any 5 digit number, I'd follow the advice directly via the Apple website.

    That"s exactly what I did when I recently moved to Moto X, I also had to delete my phone number (set as default to send message from) from iMissage in my MBP and iPad

    No problems with messaging from iDevices or non iDevices after that, I guess I got lucky, I was done in less than 10 mins.

    Goods luck

    Text 'STOP' all cap to '48369'. Apple with send you a confirmation message saying "FREE MSG: Apple iCloud ID Verification: You have been unsubscribed and will no longer receive messages. 1-800-275-2273"

    Give it 24-hrs to fully remove your number from the iCloud/iMessage server.

    If you need more help just let me know.
    Has anyone done this?

    Sent from thr Note 3...and yeah, its spectacular.

    I chatted with Apple support and was told that they will delete my phone number from their messaging servers. They said it would take 24 hours and also that all of my contacts that receive texts from me had to delete the old threads between us (a pain I'm sure), and secondly they need to double check their contact record for you to make sure they are sending to your actual phone number and not the email address you used for iMessage. Hope this helps folks, and hope it solves any issues.
